SMOKED TRI-TIP ROAST (SMOKED VERSION OF THE SANTA MARIA BARBECUE): ~ From: "About Barbecues & Grilling.Com." ~ Prep.Time: 30 min; Cooking Time: 3 hrs; Total Time: 3 hrs 30 min; Yield: (4 to 6 servings). ~ Usually this Tri Tip Roast is cooked over a live fire on a grill, but works great for the smoker. Using the smoker is going to give you a better smoke flavor but won't give you a seared surface.
Made on Very tasty and a good way to sneak in a ton of vegetables for the kids. I doubled the recipe using both Italian sausage and ground turkey, used fresh tomatoes alongside the canned and added sour cream before serving. Great with saltine crackers!
