I was not quite happy with the way it turned out. At 425F the 2 lb tri tip reached 130F internal temp in just over 30 minutes but it did not form a crust at all. I think my mistake was placing the 4 large potatoes on the same rack, too close to the roast. The potatoes took another 20 minutes or so to finish while the roast was resting, out of the oven, in foil.
The roast itself was tender and tasty, just no crust.
