  • 1 Felton Angus Beef Tri-Tip Roast
  • Salt & Pepper or your favorite seasoning rub


  1. Heat grill to 225 degrees F (gas grill: use indirect heat method for with 1/2 burners on and 1/2 burners off).
  2. Remove Tri-Tip from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  3. Season liberally with salt & pepper or your favorite seasoning rub.
  4. Place Tri-Tip on grill (gas grill: indirect heat side where burners are off).
  5. Bring Tri-Tip to 110 degree F internal temperature. Use a meat thermometer for best results.
  6. Remove Tri-Tip from grill. Turn up heat to 400+ degrees, lid closed to preheat (gas grill: all burners on for direct heat).
  7. Return Tri-Tip to grill (gas grill: over direct heat). Sear on both sides, 4-5 minutes per side.
  8. Sear until Tri-Tip reaches desired temperature. (We like Medium Rare: 130-135 degrees F).
  9. Remove Tri-Tip from grill and let it rest 15 minutes.
  10. Slice against the grain. Serve. Enjoy!

Tip: To serve a crowd, grill multiple Tri-Tip Roasts. Pull from grill at desired temperature. Store in a clean cooler with closed lid until ready to slice. Slice as you serve.
