I noticed that Cub has Tri-tip for sale so I picked one up today. I'm looking for a good rub to put on it before it hits the BGE, along with any other help anyone is willing to offer. I should add that the rub can't be too hot since I'm feeding it to my 6 year old.

I did 3 of these for a groom's dinner, and they turned out great! Three different ways:

1) cut slits into the meat and stuffed a garlic clove in each. Simple salt and pepper on the outside.

2) a rock salt crust. I had never done it before, and was nervous of the saltiness, but it turned out great.

3) a rub similar to what you would use on brisket.

I grilled over high heat to sear on each side, and then backed down to probably 350 til it was done. If i were to do it again, I'd cook to probably 135-140 and then wrap in foil to let rest for an hour or so to absorb more flavor.

here is another idea for a rub for any steak realy.

about 1/4 cup of maple syrup

1 tbls crushed garlic

1 tbls seasoned salt

1 tbls gr. black pepper

put the steaks in a bowl and drizzle the maple syrup over the steaks. then rub on the spices and garlic. the tri tip is very lean so it's a good idea not to over cook it. i dont go beyond medium on most steaks, medium rare for the most part. good luck.

I go with the Santa Maria Rub on the tri tip.

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. black pepper

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne

Sear tri tip 2-3 min over high heat on each side. Move to indirect heat and cook an additional 20-30 minutes. Cook to the preferred doneness.

Most underrated cut of beef.My test rats love them.
