Here we go.
Take you Tri-Tip out (That was pretty obvious wasn't it?)
Cut off the excess fat cap. I only leave enough on for the Tri-Tip to baste it's self in the smoker. It wasn't going to be in it for long because it was also going to be put on the Breville. Had to account for that time as well.
Season it up. Wrap it in saran wrap. Let it rest on the counter. I let it rest about 30 minutes. The Tri-tips we buy are usually pretty good sized well aged.
Set up your smoker. When your ready add the Tri-Tip. Try and place the thermometer into the thickest part of it.Turn it on. When you see wisps of smoke close the vents. Turn the flame down as low as it can go. I let mine heat to about 120 or so. Take it off.Preheat the griller. Cooked it on sear.
I take it off around 140F to give it time to rest (it's been through a lot) let the temp get up to what we prefer,medium.
Hope this helps.
