That looks really good at 840AM.
Love the tag team! Great-looking cook!
May I suggest trying one on your pellet smoker from frozen. I did one on my pit boss pellet and it was really good.Looks perfect Dan. Lots of TTs on here recently, got to get one out of the freezer and join in the fun.
Looks really good Dan, thanks for sharing it with me. I also have one I want to try from Steven Raichlens book Project Smoke a Smoked Tri Tip.May I suggest trying one on your pellet smoker from frozen. I did one on my pit boss pellet and it was really good.
My pit boss pellet was not PID ( like your Camp Chef ). The smoke settings were based on a timer delay and on P6 or P7 it would hold at about 180F. reviewing pics in the cook this one was done at P7, but I had a flame out once at P7 so I went back to P6
Anyway, I more or less did the same style cook. Put it on frozen with some seasoning on top at a low temp smoke. After an hour or so checked on it and it had thawed enough to put a meat probe in it. Slow smoked it to around 120F and then seared it. I had the tri tip on the upper rack with a griddle on the lower rack over the fire pot protecting the tri tip from direct heat. I don't know if I can remember more details as it was a few years ago.
edit: I found my cook from August of '21
here's the money shot Rich. Go find that TT in the freezer and enjoy !

Has anyone done this? I'm thinking low temp 180 to 200 and just do my normal smoke to 120 internal then reverse sear. I just pulled the tri tip out of a -7F freezer and expect it will be a while until it thaws.tvwbb.com
