Ingredients

Tri-Tip:

  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 (2-1/2 lbs) Beef Tri-Tip Roast

Mop Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard

Tri-Tip:

  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 (2-1/2 lbs) Beef Tri-Tip Roast

Mop Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard

Preparation

Mix salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, rosemary, and cayenne together in a bowl.

Place tri-tip in a baking dish and coat beef on all sides with the spice mixture. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.

Combine red wine vinegar, vegetable oil, crushed garlic and Dijon mustard together in a sealable container. Cover the container and shake to blend ingredients.

When ready to cook start the Traeger grill on smoke with the lid open until fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 450 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

Remove the tri-tip from the fridge and place directly on grill grate. Brush with garlic-vinegar mop sauce.

Cook meat for 5 minutes, flip and baste. Repeat the flip and baste process every 5 minutes for 30-40 minutes total or until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F.

Let rest 5-10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
