Hickory Smoked Tri-Tip and Garlic Smooshed Potatoes

I decided to do the reverse sear method on this hunka beef. I love the added smokey flavor. :)
I drizzled olive oil on the tri-tip and sprinkled it with Big Poppa's Double Secret Steak Rub,
then added a few potatoes that were seasoned with cracked black pepper and kosher salt.



I smoked the tatoes and tip in the Memphis Pro for about an hour at 225 until the tatoes were tender and the meat reached an internal temp of 130F.



I removed the tatoes and kicked up the heat on the Pro to quick sear the tri-tip. Then covered it and let it rest while I smooshed my potatoes...



I sauteed minced onion and garlic in butter... added flour and then cream, seasoned the sauce with salt and pepper and added my cubed smoked potatoes..







The hickory smoked tri-tip, garlic smooshed potatoes and salad...






I loved it! A real comfort meal...and the tri-tip cut like butter. :)

I love the reverse sear method. For me, I tend to burn stuff on the grill, this is much safer and gives more consistant results.

Mine did not look as good as yours. The IT jumped really quick from 119* to 135*. I like to pull @ 125* then rest. It had a good flavor but a bit overcooked.
Have a good weekend...

Being from Santa Maria, Ca. originally, I am a tri-tip man. But your tri-tip came out perfect. Great on the outside and sweet on the inside. Yup, I think there must be a Cowgirl restaurant somewhere in Oklahoma. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
Super job Cowgirl!!!!
