Default Noob with a Tri Tip

Hey all. I am new to all this and have been having fun using the used Weber I just bought. I went that route because I figured it was better than anything new in my price range. I am about to try smoking a Tri Tip for today. Wish me luck

Good luck!

What's your plan for cook temp, internal temp, seasoning, etc?

I like to do a reverse sear on Tri-tip. I cook it indirect until it hits 115 - 120 internal and then sear direct until it is 125-130 internal.

Make sure you watch the grain as you slice it since the grain changes partway through the roast.

Tri-tip is my favorite. I'm also partial to the reverse sear. Good luck!

I just coated it with Montreal Steak Seasoning, Lawrys and Garlic Powder because that is what we had and we like to use until I learn more. It actually cooked a lot faster than I expected so I missed the internal temp but hey mistakes are how you learn right? Besides who says you can't have an Easter Pizza delivered? I will take pictures after we get back from church.

Well we are back and it has been sitting in the off oven for about 90 minutes. I sliced it and it is good but obviously could be better. I guess I just need to try again huh?

You made a good choice with the Weber Kettle... It will cook anything you want to cook and they price is definitely right!

Looks like a good start to a long BBQ passion. I do lots of tri-tips on a kettle, it works great.
