    Default Tri-Tip, Tri-Tip, Tri-Tip.... Wow this was an easy smoke for my SmokinTex 1400


    As a banking computer engineer I have traveled all over the country, but in 1992 I was in the small town of Visalia, California where every Thursdays they would starting at noon block off downtown main street to host a weekly block party.

    Local Vendors would setup shop, selling flowers, fruits, vegetables arts & crafts and local foods.

    The air was filled with smoke and at the near by grills and pits was Tri-Tip cooking away. I was there for 2 months and Tri-Tip was on my Thursday dining agenda.

    So I have revisited my old friend the Tri-Tip.

    I purchased (3) tri-tips at my local WalMarts.

    Using 1 cup of Hickory chips I smoked them at 215-225 for 7 hours.

    I then placed them into a 1/2 size steamer pan and covered them and let turned the SmokinTex off but let them rest for 2 more hours, then I sliced them.

    Thanks BillyBob, coming from you that means allot,,,

    I love smoking and now my SmokinTex 1400...

    It's the best smoker I have ever owned, used or seen.

    Plus the staff at SmokinTex are all real people with the same love for a great smoker, and they really care for us.

    Again Thanks for the good words...

    That's a good lookin' cook right there. What do those weigh? I'd like to give that a whirl myself. Where are you located? In MN, it's getting pretty chilly, so I don't think I could get away with 2 hours in the Tex with no heat, but I think a 1/2 pan and a cover on a lower heat setting like 150 might work.
