Smoked Tri Tip Chili

Here is a great recipe where I smoke a Tri Tip and use it in my homemade Chili.


1 2-3 pound Tri Tip

1 pound ground Pork

2 large Onions

2 Bell Peppers

1 Jalapeno Peppers (diced and deseeded)

6 Cloves Garlic

4 Tablespoons Chili Powder

4 teaspoons ground Cumin

3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

1 can Tomato Paste (6 ounces)

1 can Green Chili Peppers (4-6 ounces)

1 bottle or can of Beer (preferably Stout or Porter)

4 cans of Diced Tomatoes (14.5 ounces)

2 cans of Chili Beans 2 cans of Beans (Pinto or Kidney)

2 Beef Bouillon Cubes

2 Teaspoons Oregano

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

Chili Pepper Flakes or Hot Sauce of your choice (If Preferred)

Smoke Tri Tip at 225-250 degrees for 1-2 hours, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees. Allow to cool and cut into cubes.

In a large frying pan over medium high heat, cook Ground Pork and the chopped Bell Peppers and Onions. Cook for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the veggies cook down and start to develop some color.

Transfer mixture to the Slow Cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours. Stir and season with salt, pepper to taste.

Top with Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Sour Cream. Enjoy!
