Smoking a tri-tip like a brisket

Smoked tritip is excellent eating. Favorite rub and let sit and tighten up. Then smoke at 250 until medium rare. Take it off and let it rest then slice thin slices against the grain. Delicious every time. I don’t wrap it every time but as long as it gets to rest before slicing it turns out good. Plus it’s 2-3 hour cook which means I’m still sober enough to enjoy it. Those 15 hour brisket cooks wear my liver out.

do use a rub first? I put mine directly on the grate and put a pan under to catch the juices but want all sides exposed for the smoke ring. Or is all that part of a marinade (in your pic)? NM I see I have a reading comp problem.
All marinade. It was only on there about 45 minutes total. Serving thin slice with chimmichurri

I’m worried about cooking it as a steak. I’m not a fan of sirloin. So I’m cooking it like a brisket to 205 degrees. I need to cook one to 125 ish tho
I went a little hotter, about 135 since my daughter has fallen in love with steak. Easing her into the rare stuff.

Sounds interesting... I always do a reverse seer... slow heat to about 120 between seer and rest it will get to about 130ish... then get the flame up and char the outside... I prefer a Cajun rub... but salt and pepper are great too...

Slice against the grain and enjoy..

205 seems like it would dry it out. I pull mine at 130 and let it rest. 225 to keep the smoke going and a couple hours to 130.
Typo, he said in earlier post he went to 135 for his daughter.

Edit: my bad. Got 2 posters mixed up.

Got a Traeger grill last month from my best friend. Used it for the first time yesterday. Made ribs and wings. Did nothing special other than follow recipes on the Traeger app. Both were incredible, restaurant-worthy. Had to be the grill because I've never made anything that tasty before.
