Barbecued Tri-Tip
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ Tbsp paprika
  • ½ Tbsp granulated garlic
  • ½ Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 (2 to 2 ½ lb) tri-tip roast, fat removed
  • Soaked wood chunks or chips, your choice of variety

Preheat your smoker to 225°F. In a small bowl, mix the salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, and onion powder. Coat the tri-tip with the rub. Place the tri-tip on the smoker and cook until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 135°F, 2 to 3 hours.

Remove the tri-tip from the smoker and allow to rest 15 minutes. Thinly slice the meat against the grain. Serve with barbecue sauce.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.
