We love tri-tip. 4-6 hours is way too long. Sear at a high heat then move to indirect heat. Depending on the size 1- 1 1/2 hours is plenty. Take of grill @ 130 deg. for med-rare. let stand.

Very good! Only had to cook it for 2 hours...the drippings were delicious! Added a little soy sauce and olive oil to the seasonings and made a marinade. We basted it every 20 minutes or so. ...

This was an easy, extremely tasy, meal we shared at a recent gathering of friends. The meat was very tender and made a wonderful sandwich served on rolls with homemade horseradish sauce. The onl...
