How to reverse sear a tri tip

1. Start off by trimming the hard fat and silver skin off the back of the tri tip. Once trimmed, apply olive oil and then add your favorite rub. I added Killer Hogs AP seasoning. Killer Hogs AP is an excellent blend of salt, pepper, and garlic and that is all you need on a quality cut of meat. Let sit on your countertop while you start up your pellet grill. Turn your pellet grill up to 225°, once your grill reaches temperature, put your tri tip directly on the grates. Inset your cooking meat thermometer into the thickest cut of the beef. Smoke until your internal temperature of your tri tip reaches 119°. Pull off grill and let the tri tip rest while you crank up pellet grill temperature to 450°.

2. Put your cast iron skillet in your pellet grill and once your grill reaches 450° add a stick of unsalted butter into skillet.

3. Once your butter has melted put the tri tip into your skillet. Let it sear in butter and flipping on both sides. Pull at your desired doneness.

Rare 120° Medium rare 130° Medium 140° Medium well 150° Well done 160° I'm sorry we can't be friends. 🤣

4. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes and remember your tri tip will still cook while resting.

How to cut tri tip

To cut tri tip correctly and like most cuts of beef you need to cut against the grain. Start by separating the section where the two grains intersect and cut into two pieces. Then start slicing from the small end against the grain, then grab your other cut and begin slicing against the grain.
