Default Valentine's Day Smoke

At Christmas time I attempted my first ever tri-tip smoke and it turned out so well that my wife insisted I make her another tri-tip for Valentine's Day. I managed to get a sample packet of Dizzy Pig's Red Eye Express which is what I used. I am not a fan of any of the Dizzy Pig products, but my wife is the boss on this one!

The plan is to rub the tri-tip down with the Red Eye Express again and refridgerate overnight. I will smoke the TT on my Kamado Joe using lump charcoal and white oak chunks. Once it hits 129 degrees F I will pull it and let it rest for thirty minutes before I slice thin. Am I missing anything?

I will post some photos!

Sounds good.

This is what I put on my tri-tip

Comes out great every time.
If you have a weber kettle I would use that over the kamado and do a reverse sear. Slowly bringing it up to temp then throwing it over direct fire when it hits about 115. Sear to 125 to 130. Wrap in tinfoil and a blanket for about half hr. then slice and serve.

Best of luck with your cook. Whatever you do I'm sure it will come out great!!!
