This preparation for BBQ tri tip is easy and super-delicious. All you will need is a BBQ grill (charcoal, wood or gas), a tri tip, some French’s mustard and a bit of kosher salt.
Select a respectable tri tip and trim off any excess fat.
Apply a generous coat of mustard. No need to go with a boutique brand here. Frenchâ€™s works the best. You can do this in a bowl or plastic bag.
Shower the tri tip liberally with kosher salt.
Pre-heat your grill then cook the tri tip directly over medium heat to desired doneness (medium would be an internal temperature around 150Âº-165ÂºF). TR goes by feel… when the tri tip feels firm, it’s done. I can’t explain the “feel” in words, but you will get hang of it after grilling few tri-tips. F.Y.I. yes I know that this recipe technically is “grilled tri tip” and not “bbq tri tip”…but nobody ever says “grilled tri tip.”
Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice, enjoy and take a bow.
