    Tri-tip on KBQ

    I’m getting ready to do a tri-tip on my KBQ. What is the best temp to cook at? Low and slow and then sear on the top grate, or high temp and then sear. IT to about 130?

    I don’t have a KBQ, but I say low n slow, then sear over the firebox.

    I cook Tri-Tip low and slow until IT is about 120F and then sear the hell out of it. When I pull, the IT is about 130F and carry over takes it to 135-140F. Tri-Tip is perhaps my favorite cook and after 15 years of working to get it somewhere close to the stuff you can get in Central California (Santa Maria, etc), I believe this approach is about 85% as good as those guys do on their open Santa Maria grills over live wood fire. On the KBQ, I gotta think you are gonna get even closer to that.

      dinner time

      Tri-tip came out really well, very juicy. My question is when searing, I had coals on the bottom of the firebox and a medium size log that was still there. Should there have been only coals or does it matter. The fire didn’t seem to be near as hot as when searing over the slow n sear.

        I can’t see it being cooked any better than that. Great job.
