not sure the best wood to smoke my tri tip with, any suggestions?
I like hickory, but that's just me.
I don't have any tri tips around here, but any kind of beef like that, I like Hickory and/or Cherry.
I do mine with Pecan or Cherry
Like most i am a big fan of cherry and hickory!
X2. It's all about personal preference!
I like pecan.
Or wine barrel, if it can be sourced.
EDIT: Since touching on abrrel, which is Oak, I would argue that beef and oak practically go hand-in-hand, like Jeeps and busted axles.
You wouldn't go wrong with hickory. As stated before, it is a matter of taste. Traditional Santa Maria tri tip was done over red oak if you have any of that available. I have never used red oak, so I don't know how it would compare to regular oak. Hmmm?
Good luck and good smoking!
I love the taste of cherry on beef.. Mesquite is overdone IMHO here in TX. Pecan would also be a great choice, or a mix.
I like cherry and beech
