Smoked Tri-tip Roast
Smoked tri-tip is on of my favorite beef cuts to smoke when I am looking for a steak-like texture and flavor. The really awesome thing is that cooking steaks or even lean, tender roasts in the smoker yields a medium rare that is edge to edge instead of the typical medium rare in the center and more done toward the outside. Perfectly cooked all the way through!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Servings 4 -6

Step 1: Remove the Fat Cap (optional)
Step 2: Season the Meat
Rub olive or vegetable oil all over the top, bottom and sides of the tri-tip roast.
Apply Jeff's Texas style rub generously all over the roast.
Step 3: Smoke the Tri-tip
Place the ti-tip directly on the grate of the smoker
Using indirect heat, smoke cook the roast for about 2 hours or until it reaches medium rare (140°F)
Remove from smoker and allow trip tip to rest under foil for about 20 minutes once it has finished cooking.
