The rotisserie tri-tip was such a hit, we had people begging for more. We decided to change things up and BBQ the tri-tip this time around. We kept things simple and seasoned with salt and pepper. We smoked the tri-tip with apple chunks at 250 °F until we hit an internal temperature of 125 °F.

We allowed the tri-tip to rest for 20 minutes and during that time reconfigured our Weber grill for direct heat to finish it off with a nice and crispy sear. Once we had a good crust we pulled from heat and allowed to rest for another 5 minutes. Slice as desired, garnish with your favorite sides and dig in!


Tri-tip is a leaner cut of beef so you'll want a medium to lighter bodied wine. Pinot Noir's make a perfect pairing, however, if you like something bolder try a Malbec or Syrah.


Tri-tip steak is full of flavor and lean on calories. A 3 ounce serving will net you only 181 calories so a second serving is virtually guilt free!
