    Smoked & Reverse Seared Tri Tip

    I smoked a Tri Tip on my MAK 1 Star followed by a reverse sear on my Kamado Joe with Grill Grates.

    Great looking tri-tip. Your intro roll had me wishing I was eating at your house.

      Next time try turning your grill gates over to the flat side to sear, that way you get more of that great crust, instead of just the crust on the grate lines. I also apply some oil, bacon grease or duck fat to the grates just before searing.

        Reminds me...
        My oldest used to forget his lunch...a lot.
        I told him. "You forget this one more time and I'm going to show up at lunch time wearing a My Little Pony t-shirt with a Barney lunch box...yelling your name until I track you down."
        He never called my bluff. LOL

      Excellent!! Enjoyed the video. I have to admit that I have never smoked a TT. Something that I will have to try.

      Great job and Grill ON!!

      Happy Holidays

          Dry brine at the rate of 1/2 tsp kosher salt per lb. of meat. For the salt to really penetrate it needs to be on for at least several hours and there's no need to rinse it off. Love tri-tip.

            That was fun Ken, thanks for having us along and inviting us into your home. I do my TT's on the Santa Maria grill most often now, but enjoy a similar method to yours as well.

              I bought a Santa Maria attachment for my Weber kettle but I've only used it a few times. I will try to get know it better when it warms up. I'm sure the TTs turn out great on them!

            That was really fun! Great job on the tri-tip. Thanks for sharing the video and family! You all look fantastic. I’m a Tri tip smoker and your method in the video is very similar to mine. The difference is that I couldn’t do a video nearly as well. You did a top notch job.

          If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

          Placeholder

          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          Placeholder

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          Placeholder

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          Placeholder

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Placeholder

          Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
