Start off by heating up the grill to 250 degrees and set in up for dual zone heat. This means there should be an indirect cooking set up as well as direct for the final sear.
First place the tri tip on the indirect side for approximately 1 hour or until it reaches 120 internal.
Then, increase the temperature of the grill to high heat at 500 degrees and sear the steak 2 minutes per side.
Finally, set aside the grilled trip tip steak to rest for 10 minutes. It’s very important to rest any protein after a cook. This process helps redistribute all those wonderful juices that will create a beautifully tender slice of meat.
