Thrill of the Grill: Tri-Tip

Picture 1555

Preparation

Pull the meat out of the fridge about 30 minutes prior to grilling so it can reach room temperature.  Liberally cover the meat with your favorite rub.  I like to use a mix of Lawry’s seasoning salt and cayenne pepper (if you like a little kick).

Grilling

Cook the tri-tip 5 minutes per side on a hot grill (400-500 F).  Turn the grill down to low and cook 20-25 minutes longer flipping 2-3 times (30-35 minutes total).  You can also baste with your favorite BBQ sauce 5 minutes before removing.  I personally like Cattleman’s smoky flavor.  Remove the meat, cover with foil, and let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing thin and serving.
