Simpson's Angus Tri Tip
Simpson's Appalachian Sea Salt & Pepper Blend, Simpson's Red Roaster Coffee Rub, or a rub of your choice
Preheat grill with smokebox or smoker to 225 degrees.
Remove Simpson's Angus Tri Tip from packaging and pat dry.
Cover all sides of tri tip generously with olive oil and rub of your choice.
When grill or smoker reaches 225 degrees, place tri tip on the grill either fat side up or down (If you place the tri tip fat side up, you will end up with a more tender result. If you place the tri tip fat side down, you will end up with more flavor from the rub you have applied on the tri tip).
Place temperature probe in the tri tip and smoke until 5-10 degrees shy of your desired final temperature. Approximately 2 hours (
115 degrees for rare, 125 for medium rare, 135 for medium, 145 for medium well, or 150 for well done).
When tri tip is close to desired temperature, begin heating up a cast iron pan over high heat.
Remove tri tip from grill or smoker and sear for 2-3 minutes per side on preheated cast iron pan.
After searing, place tri tip on a cutting board and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
To serve, make cuts against the grain, starting with the smallest end. Pay attention to the grain as you slice. The grain will change as you get to the thicker portion of the tri tip.
