SERVES: 8 People ~ PREP TIME: 5 minutes ~ COOK TIME: 1.5 hours ~ PELLETS: Pecan
1 1/3 (3-5 lb) tri-tip
1/8 Cup pepper
1/8 Cup salt
1 - When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
2 - Combine salt and pepper. Season all sides of meat with a heavy coat of the salt and pepper mixture.
3 - Place tri-tip directly on the grill grate and cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 130℉, this should take about 60 to 90 minutes.
4 - When tri-tip reaches 130℉, pull off the grill and wrap in foil.
5 - Increase the Traeger temperature to 500°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
6 - When grill comes to temperature, remove tri-tip from foil and sear for 4 minutes on each side.
7 - Pull off the grill and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Slice against the grain to serve. Enjoy!
