Pit Barrel Tri-Tip
April 10, 2013
Over the last several weeks I’ve had the opportunity to fire up my Pit Barrel Cooker on various occasions, the most recent of which was for a tri-tip last evening. When it comes to tri-tip my rule of thumb is keep it simple stupid (KISS). A nice coating of extra virgin olive oil, a rub down with granulated garlic, cracked black pepper, onion powder, and Kosher salt and that’s it. The tri-tip is then hung in the Pit Barrel Cooker for approximately 30 minutes for medium rare.
2 lb. tri-tip
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. Kosher salt
½ tbsp. cracked black pepper
1 tsp. granulated garlic
1 tsp. onion powder
Prepare Pit Barrel Cooker or grill for high heat cooking. Coat tri-tip evenly with olive oil. Blend dry ingredients and sprinkle generously over trip-tip.
Hang tri-tip in the Pit Barrel Cooker or place on grill grate. Allow to cook uninterrupted for 30 minutes on the Pit Barrel Cooker or flip every 5 minutes on the charcoal grill for a total of 30 minutes.
