Smoked Tri-Tip Steak

Tri-tip is a perfect cut of meat to reverse sear to lock in that juicy, smoky flavor with a high temperature finish.  Unlike a brisket which takes hours of smoking to break down, smoked tri-tip is best cooked to a medium rare, like a steak, and is ready in no time. 

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 1-2 hrs *depending on size


  • 2-3 Lbs Tri-Tip trimmed
  • 3 Tbsp Coffee Spice BBQ Rub
  • Olive Oil


  1. Lightly coat the tri-tip with olive oil then rub with Coffee Spice BBQ Rub to completely cover the meat.  
  2. Start your grill and set temp to 225 degrees.   When up to temp, place the Tri-Tip on the center of the grill and close the lid.  
  3. Slow cook the tri-tip to approx. 110 degrees then increase the temperature of the grill to high to sear the outside.  
  4. Continue to cook until reaching an internal temperature if 130 degrees (for medium rare)
  5. Remove from the grill, tent with foil and let’s sit for 15 minutes.  Remove foil, slice and serve.
