Smoked Tri Tip by Frugal Mom
3-Pound Tri-Tip, room temperature
2 Tablespoons Salt
2 Tablespoons Pepper
2 Tablespoons Brisket Rub
Preheat pellet smoker to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a small dish, combine the seasonings and mix well.
Sprinkle the mixture over the tri-tip, on both sides, and lightly rub in.
Once the smoker is ready (about 15 minutes), place the tri-tip in the middle of the grate and insert the meat probe into the thickest part of the meat.
Smoke for about 1 hour or until the internal temp reaches 110 degrees. At this point, increase heat to 500 degrees.
Smoke for another 30 minutes or until the internal temp reaches 125 degrees.
Remove and let rest before serving.
Slice against the grain for best results. Enjoy!
