Smoked Tri-Tip – RVing
Who says you can't take it with you? On the road that is and not into the hereafter ... Our Motorhome manufacturer's motto is "Roughing It Smoothly" and my Green Mountain Grill Davy Crockett wood pellet smoker-grill is perfect to take on the road with us. Watched a little TV and used my WiFi connection to monitor and control the Davy Crockett.
Used one of my time tested recipes to smoke this peeled Choice 3 lb Tri-Tip roast I picked up at Costco. Since it was peeled I only needed to trim a small amount of excess fat and silver skin. Rubbed the Tri-Tip with Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and lightly seasoned all sides with Pete's Western Rub before wrapping the roast in plastic wrap and refrigerating overnight.
Preheated the GMG Davy Crockett to 225ºF with Cookinpellets.com Premium Perfect Mix pellets. The Premium Perfect Mix is comprised of Hickory, Cherry, Hard Maple, and Apple pellets. Trust me when I say you can't go wrong when using these pellets. Smoked the Tri-Tip roast at 225ºF until the internal temperature reached 145ºF. Rested the roast for 15 minutes under a loose foil tent before slicing against the grain. Remember that a Tri-Tip roast has grains which run in multiple directions. After all, it's called a Tri-Tip cause it's the junction of 3 muscles.
Cooking times: On @ 2 pm / IN @ 2:30 pm / OUT @ 5 pm / Rest under foil tent for 15 minutes ... Remember - Always cook to internal temperatures.
