I’ve done dozens if not a hundred or more tri tip anll on coals. And I have a traeger. I still grill them on briquettes. I build a fire on one side and put the meat on opposite side. 15 minutes per starting our fat side up. Usually the first 15 minute cook I toss hickory or apple or cherry or mesquite chips on the coals and tighten the Weber lid down as tight at is will go and close the vent. Next 2 15 minute sessions leave a small 1/2 or less crack between kid and lip of kettle on the coal side and that’s enough to get the coals back to life and be prefect. You can go 10-12 minutes a side if you prefer it more rare. Let sit 10-20 mins and slice against grain. You get a very nice smoke ring and smoke flavor

All that said I’m 10 hours into a brisket on the traeger put it on at 8am before leaving for church. Wrapped in paper at 7 hours and just took off and it’s sitting in the cooler. Dinner in an hour !

I get them from Costco. Straight out of the package and onto the grill. There's some fat on them, but not a lot.


This if I need 2 and have guests. Usually get one 2.5-3 pounds pre cook weight trimmed at my supermarket. Plenty for me wife and 2 teens

Well it turned out perfectly. Put on the bbq at 475 degrees for a few mins. on each side. Looked beautiful and was nice and pinkish on the inside. Great flavor. I will do that again. But at $35 for the tri tip it won't be as often as I would like unfortunately. Thanks for the help guys.

Untrimmed tri-tips can be had around here for about $4/lb frequently and occasionally down to $3/lb. Trimmed is usually a dollar more. I typically do trimmed to save myself time, but if I need some more tallow I'll do untrimmed for a while.

Wow. $3-$4 per pound is cheap. Around here, they're usually ~$7/pound.

But the OP's $35 for a tri-tip sounds pretty high, unless it was a 5 pounder! Here they're usually more like 2-3 pounds apiece, so would cost more like $15-$20.
