  • 2.5 lbs Beef Tri Tip Sirloin

Beef Au Jus


  • Preheat Smoker to 200 degrees F.
  • Season tri tip on all sides with your favorite dry rub, I kept it simple with a salt and peper based texas style brisket rub. Smoked until tri tip reaches an internal temp of 100 degrees F.
  • In an aluminum foil pan place a quartered onion, carrots and 4 stalks of celery along with italian seasoning and a quart of beef broth.
  • Once the tri tip reachs 100 degrees place the tri tip in the foil pan on top of the vegetables and continue smoking until you reach an internal temp of 130 Degrees F.
  • Remove the tri tip and let it rest for about 15 minutes while you raise the temp of the grill to 400 degrees F. Sear the tri tip on all sides for about 2 minutes per side.
  • Slice the tri tip thin and place on a bun with provolone cheese. Strain off the au jus and serve on the side for dipping the sliders
