    Searing Tri-tip, cooking on a Pit Barrel

    I have a AOG natural gas grill and a Pit Barrel. The predicted wind on Friday will make the AOC unreliable, so I'm thinking to sear on it using the salamander along with the 3 burners for the sear, already having the PBC up to heat and putting the t-tip on the grate or grill grates for the cook. Any thoughts or suggestions??

      I love tri tip and I always cook it im my PBC. Hang it til it hits around 125⁰F and then pull it and let it rest for a couple of minutes uncovered while I get the other food ready, then slice and serve

        Done that in the past, like Noah recommends, but too rare for us. I've been using 130 and letting it rest no matter what I've cooked it on. Do you sear at all?

      Frankly, I never felt the need to sear PBC tri-tip … just the urge to eat it.

        Thanks. I've done the reverse-sear and no sear when using the PBC.

        Yep, I totally agree w/@MBMorgan, eat the Tri tip right off the PBC.

      After all the helpful comments, I used my AOG and Grill Grates and it came out fantastic! I'm trying to get the pictures uploaded from my phone.

        PBC, PBC, PBC!

      I used to always sear tri-tip on the gasser or the griddle after pulling it out of the PBC. Lately I haven't bothered with a final sear. I really don't notice that much difference after slicing it up. There's only a bit of crust on each slice, so I'm questioning whether it's worth the effort to fire up (and clean up) another cooker.

        Oh yeah. It's the fun of grilling. I'll use two cookers to get want I want. Clean up is not that bad. Always fun playing around with equipment.

      I reverse sear a tri tip.
      smoke first to 110 on the PBC.
      Sear on the gasser to 125. Normally get 5-10 degrees of carry over.


      Now that I have an SnS kettle, I can do it on one cooker.
      But the pbc / gasser is a great combo
