We eat a lot of Tri Tip because they are delicious, easy to make and tend to be a leaner cut of beef. We use our smoker and it makes it taste like heaven. Tri Tip is great by itself or it’s very tasty used in cheesesteaks or chopped on salads. My husband, Kyle, is the smoker master. He’s been making these Tri Tips for years but I thought I’d start sharing them with you all.
Tri Tips are usually around 3 or 4 pounds and can be found in your grocery’s meat section. Some stores here in Texas have them near the briskets and some stores you have to get them from the meat counter.
You’ll want to trim any fat or membranes from the Tri Trip before cooking it. Season it with salt, pepper, garlic and chili powder. Preheat your smoker to around 250-300 degrees. Smoke your Tri Tip for 2-2.5 hours or until center hits 160.
We like to make these up ahead of time so it’s easy to have dinners ready quickly during the week. Store it in aluminum foil in its juices until you’re ready to serve it. Slice it thin and enjoy on chopped salads or in bunless recipes like cheesesteaks. It tastes great cold or warm too!
I served it sliced with a side of roasted broccoli and one of Keto Connect’s new biscuits.
