Here is a very simple and easy way to make some delicious Smoked Tri Tip, with the help of your Sous Vide machine.
Season your Tri Tip with the rub of your choice. Allow the meat to absorb the salt from the rub for at least half an hour, or overnight.
Smoke your Tri Tip using the smoking method you prefer. Cold smoking or hot smoking at a low temperature, not letting the temperature of the Tri Tip to rise past 125 degrees.
Vacuum seal your Tri Tip in a bag and cook in a Sous Vide bath for 3-6 hours at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. Larger Tri Tips should be cooked at least 3 hours, or longer if time allows.
Remove Tri Tip and dry off completely with paper towels. Sear over hot grill for 90 seconds to 2 minutes on each side. You may also sear in a hot Frying pan or in the oven using your broiler.
Slice and enjoy!
