Jeff's Grilled Tri-Tip
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: BBQ
Serves: 4-6
Weight Watchers Info: 4 PointsPlus per serving. Based off Weight Watchers' listing for beef sirloin, lean, trimmed. 3 PointsPlus for 3 ounces of cooked tri-tip. 1 PointPlus for 1-2 tablespoons of Woody’s Cook’n Sauce.
  • 2-1/2 to 3 pound tri-tip (I prefer a cut that is more uniformly thick from one end to the other for more even cooking)
  • Allegro’s Gold Buckle Brisket Marinade
  • Woody’s Cook-in Sauce
  • Oak wood chips
  1. Trim the fat layer off the bottom of the tri tip.
  2. Soak the tri-tip in a ziploc bag full of the marinade overnight.
  3. Remove tri tip from marinade when ready to cook.
  4. Baste it well in Woody’s Cook-in Sauce.
  5. Add damp oak wood chips to the fire, either directly for charcoal, or in a smoker box for gas grilling.
  6. Grill as you normally would. I usually do it four inches or so above the coals for 20-30 minutes per side, depending on the thickness, to yield a nice medium rare.
Yield: A 2-1/2 to 3 pound tri-tip ( as seen here) will easily serve four to six people, depending on their appetites and your desire for leftovers!
