Smoked Tri-Tip
« on: 04/15/12 14:27:42 »
Smoked some tri-tip for the first time. Very impressed.





Rubbed garlic, salt, pepper, and dried parsely on it.



Used a Masterbuilt Smoker, not the SRG.











Mmm mmm good!

Looks great Clu!

But $6.99 a lb.... Dang :o we Californians are lucky!

At least it is choice ;)

How hot did you smoke it and what temp did you pull it? Also how long did it take?

Did it at 225F in the MES. I expected it to take 2.5 hours but took less than 1 hour! I left it on the counter for longer than expected and the IT was 60F when I put it in the MES. I cooked it to an IT of 130F. Then I seared it in a cast iron frying pan and tented it for 15 minutes.

The tiny amount of leftovers are gonna make great sandwiches for my work lunch!

Next time try 240F cabinet temp in the MES and when it reaches 130F IT pull it and give it a 5 minute sear on the grill(2 1/2 minutes a side).

That makes for a great Tri-tip ;)
