After 15 total minutes I light up a half chimney of briquettes for the reverse sear. After 40 minutes total I check the IT. It should be getting puffy. At IT of about 115 or so I add the additional briquettes and give it a couple minutes to heat up.
I then do a reverse sear right over the hot stuff for about 2 minutes a side.
Tri-tip takes about 45 minutes almost every time for me. Then it gets a 20 minute rest with a foil tent over it.
Looks fantastic Marty. You do it almosts exactly like I do.
