I was wondering how you cook tri-tip??  I was kinda hoping someone from California could chime in. That is what some in CA believe is what BBQ is.  Do you smoke it?  Do you cook it to a medium, to medium rare like a steak?? Or do you grill it.  Never done it before and was curious what CA is so excited about??

The great thing about Tri-Tip is you can cook it any number of ways.

I still like to smoke it for about 4 hours to medium rare about 135 - 140 degrees in the center.  Medium will be about 150 - 160 degrees.

When cooked right, it is one of the best tasting meats.

If you grill it, you want to grill it for about 30 minutes over medium coals.  I personally think it tastes best when smoked though..

Good luck, if you cook some up, make sure to take pictures and post them up along with your feedback..  Wink

I have found that Tri Tip (or London Broil) is a tough cut of meat. I use to grill it until I got the smoker. Now I prefer to cook it like a brisket.

The last one I did unfortunately got over done and dried out.

Rubbed or marinated overnight.

Seared over hot coals and some Red Oak on all sides till crispy.

Low heat red oak smoke until 130 in center.

Cover and Rest 15-20 minutes before slicing thin.  Temp will climb 8 -10 degrees.

Comes out great every time.

I would say cook it to a medium. Just make sure you rub it or use some type of marinade or BBQ sauce.

I like to marinate in cumin, chile powder(home ground...ancho, NM hot and mild, and chile de arbols), minced onion and garlic (fresh), chopped cilantro and some lime juice with a little lime zest. Of course, salt and pepper.
 I grill it direct for about 3 minutes per side, so total of 9 minutes. If it feels underdone I will set it aside and finish off till done. I like it med rare. Cindy likes med. so i try to get it in between...bout 140-145 I would think after resting it for 15 minutes.
 I like to slice on the bias and serve with warm tortillas, pico de gallo, limes, sour cream, and fresh cilantro. Some grilled onion doesn't hurt either.

I see now....  Are there any other marinade recipes out there as my wife is a bit of a weinie and doesn't like things real spicy.  I am kinda thinking maybe some sort of garlic and citrus marinade.  Any other ideas??

Per Tri-tip (trimmed, no fat):

3 Large Garlic Cloves - Minced fine.
1 Tbl Kosher Salt
2 tsp Coarse Black Pepper
1 tsp Dried Thyme crushed leaves.

Mix all in a bowl and rub all around the Tri-tip the night before.  Smoke at 235 - 250 for about 3 hours.  Pull at your desired temp for doneness.  I use straight apple wood when smoking.  Everyone I have catered for loves this and wants to know the secret.

Grilling: Marinate over night in a non-reactive bowl with one whole bottle of Basque meat marinade.  Add one or two lemons (juiced).  Grill over high heat for about 10-15 minutes on both sides.

I have never grilled over oak.  Just charcoal.  Either way, it comes out great.

Tri-tip is tricky.  You may not get it right the first few times, but once you do, you are going to love it. Wink
