View Full Version : Tri Tip in progress

18 hour overnight marinade in oil, garlic, worchestishire, coarse pepper and mustard. Have seared the Tri on both sides for a nice crust. Now wrapped tight in foil offset in Tiernan SOB. Cocoshell briquettes and hickory chunks for fuel.

Ironically this was my third TriTip cook and first success. The two fails were in the PBC. I just didn't know WTF I was doing hanging. I over cooked both and were dry. Also this cut was purchased from a butcher and a better cut of meat. I seared this Tri tip at 450* plus on both sides for 4-5 minutes. Then wrapped tight in foil placed offset in Tiernan SOB to an internal of 127-135. Removed and allowed to rest guessing 20-30 min. I loosened and tented the foil around 15-20" of the rest period. This thing was squirting juice as I sliced it. Medium ends for bride- med rare-medium middle for me. Very pleased.
I'm sure the PBC can crank out a mean TT. I'm thinking that sear was key for my advanced beginner cooking level.

I usually hang it first and cook to about 110-115 IT. I keep the PBC at my favorite temp of 275 (ish). Once the tri-tip is where I want it I sear it on another grill to about 135 (We like medium). I suppose I could sear it in the PBC but I haven't tried searing anything on it yet as it just seems like the grate is too far from the coals.

My tips also have the fat trimmed off. I noticed yours had the fat cap still on. Not sure it that makes a difference or not. I've never cooked a bad tri-tip though. I've done them on my weber and PBC and I think I'd give the edge to the PBC.

Here's a decent shot of one:
