Default How do you cook your tri-tip?

I'll be doing a tri-tip tomorrow and was just wondering how everybody does theirs just trying to get some different ideas.

I prep mine like I would ribs. Worcestershire sauce rubbed over the meat, then coated with your favorite rub and cook at 225 until internal temp is between 130-140 depending on how done you like it.

Basic Santa Maria style would be salt, pepper, lots of granulated garlic as a rub, then cooked to internal of around 125F (medium rare) in a smoker at around 275F using red oak for the smoke, then post sear on a hot grill.

I use a basic BBQ rub instead of just salt, add pepper, and lots of granulated garlic (the granulated garlic composes half of the rub, really!) and use hickory instead.

I *LOVE* this stuff on sammies day 2.

The two I did on Tuesday had Montreal Steak seasoning on the outside, and I tried an injection for the first time. We even did a reverse sear. Turned out really good, wife said it was a bit too peppery for her though.

Big fan of the "reverse sear" myself. Agree with cooking to around 125ish...with the shape of this piece of meat you often get a higher temp at the point than on the thicker side.

Once I'm at around 125 I'll cooler it while I jack the fire up as hot as I can get if before searing for a couple minutes a side.

My tri rub has salt, pepper, paprika, oregano, thyme, rosemary and I marinate in garlic/olive oil before hand.

Tri-tip is some good eatin'

Marinade for a few hours in a simple marinade of EVOO, Worster, and Soy sauce then Rub with Montreal Steak seasoning.

I usually do a reverse sear, smoking to about 130* then crisp it up on the gasser.

Salt & Pepper all over
Indirect heat on kettle charcoal and wood
Baste every 6 minutes with 50/50 mixture of melted butter and A1 Bold
At 130 internal sear both sides
Pull, rest, carve & eat.

OR

Santa Maria Rub from Rub Co. And smoke until 130 internal and sear.

I don't have a smoker...yet... So I like to grill mine on a charcoal grill. I like to season it with black pepper and some garlic powder with a dash of kosher salt. Then I toss it over high heat and, depending on the thickness, cook it for about 3 minutes on each side. Then I move it over to indirect heat and let it cook until medium rare. I don't really cook according to temp, although I probably should, I just go by how it feels when I poke it.

This is the way to go.

For me same as above except lots of black pepper and seasoning salt. No need to kill it with a bunch of extra crap.

Don't know what rub I'm gonna use,Raising the Steaks is calling me.....and if I ain't gonna use that one I'm gonna make a homemade rub with the info that's in this thread.
Probably I'll ask Brother Niek for a recipe cause he's a tri tip Master!
