Tri Tip with Grilled Pico de Gallo

Tri Tip with Grilled Tomato Pico de Gallo is a festive and delicious dish for any gathering. The tri tip is rubbed, grilled, and then topped with an easy tomato salsa.

Prepare the tri tip rub ahead of time, so you can let the tri tip marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before grilling. This will give you the best flavor.

The tri tip is first cold smoked on the indirect side of the grilled, then seared and allowed to finish cooking on the hot side of the grill.

Ingredients

Tri Tip Rub

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons raw sugar

1 teaspoon chili powder

pinch of chipotle powder, or to taste

Tomato Pico de Gallo

1 cup halved grape tomatoes

1/4 cup Italian dressing

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1/4 cup finely diced onions

Salt and pepper

Tri Tip

1 (1 1/2 to 2 pound) tri tip roast

2 tablespoons tri tip rub

Recipe Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together. Set aside.

  2. Marinate the tomatoes in Italian dressing for 1 hour. 

  3. Grill the tomatoes on a very hot grill in a BBQ wok for 30 seconds. Remove.

  4. Add the cilantro, onions, and salt and pepper.

  5. Rub the tri tip with the rub and let rest in fridge for at least 2 hours before cooking. 

  6. Light a BBQ between 275 and 350 degrees F (135 and 175 degrees C) and set it up for indirect cooking (one side hot and one side cold). Place a tinfoil pouch full of wood chips on the hot side and wait to smoke. 

  7. Once the chips start smoking, place the tri tip on the cold side to roast. Cook until the meat reaches 115 degrees F (45 degrees C). Move the meat to the hot side to sear. Cook on the hot side until coldest part of the tri tip is 130 degrees F (55 degrees C).

  8. Serve with the grilled pico on top.
