1 (3-5 lb) tri-tip
1/8 Cup pepper
1/8 Cup salt
When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Pellet Tube if available.
Combine salt and pepper. Season all sides of meat with a heavy coat of the salt and pepper mixture.
Place tri-tip directly on the grill grate and cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 130℉, this should take about 60 to 90 minutes.
When tri-tip reaches 130℉, pull off the grill and wrap in foil.
Increase the Z Grill temperature to 500°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
When grill comes to temperature, remove tri-tip from foil and sear for 4 minutes on each side.
Pull off the grill and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Slice against the grain to serve. Enjoy!
