    During football season, I started a tradition called "Eat the Opponent" in which I cook something from the area of the team the Cowboys are playing. Today it's smoked tri-tip since the 49ers are the opponent. I threw on a 2.2# tri-tip at 250 right at noon, went to run a quick errand, and when i came back an hour later, it was at 130 IT. I was stunned, so I checked it with my Thermapen, & it said the same temp as my Maverick ET-733. Pulled it off and stuck it in a cooler wrapped in foil and towels.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
     
  2. It looks tasty. Try a reverse sear on a tri tip next time It is over the top>

    Happy smoken.

    Tasty looking Tri! They don't take very long at all. Like David said the reverse sear is a nice touch for tri tip!

    I don't even know what that last picture is. I did a reverse sear, and it turned out awesome, although since it was already at 130 I only left it on for 4 minutes per side. Sliced it thin, topped it with grilled peppers & onion, roasted hatch chiles, smoked jalapeno havarti & served it up on a King's Hawaiian sandwich roll. Delicious.
