The Tri-Tip is a staple of Central California cuisine. This triangular cut from the sirloin is famous for its performance on the grill, especially when prepared on hardwood. While the tri-tip is lean, it’s bursting with flavor. In Santa Maria, the home of the Tri-Tip, this crescent shaped roast is prepared using salt and pepper and grilled to an ideal medium rare. The Snake River Farms Tri-Tip has the rich taste you expect from American Wagyu beef, yet is surprisingly lean. Serve in the classic California style with garlic toast, salsa and pinquito beans or use your favorite method to grill, braise or rotisserie cook this delicious roast.
Due to the unique conformations of this product, approximate weights can vary up to +/- 0.5 pounds.
Roast Temperature Guide
Here are the magic numbers you’ll need to determine when your roast is cooked to the degree of doneness you most prefer. The internal temp is when the roast should be removed from the heat. The roast will continue to cook so the temperature will rise during the rest period.
|Rare||Red center, very cool||110°F|
|Medium Rare||Red, warm center||120°F|
|Medium Well||Pink center||140°F|
|Well||No pink||Not recommended|
*Consuming raw or undercooked meats may increase your risk of foodborne illness. The USDA recommends an internal temp of 145°F and resting for at least 3 minutes.

The best Tri-Tip
I've smoked a lot of these, mostly during the holidays. I've always seasoned them just like a steak and seasoned this one (I ordered two) the same. I always keep them in a light smoke the entire cook, which will only be a couple of hours at 250-275. I let them rest under foil for around 30 minutes and then slice.
I cooked this one the exact same way but the difference was amazing! The red color in the med rare meat is a deeper red, the juiciness is juicier and the flavor is not to be believed, unless you've cooked one as well. It's simply one of the best meats I've ever cooked in my entire life! I still have one in the freezer too!

SRF Team : Thanks so much, Russ! We are so happy to hear that you enjoy the SRF Tri-Tip. Thanks for ordering!
I’ve ordered a few times from SRF, and they always deliver. This Tri-tip was fantastic. Excellent marbling, the order was delivered a day before initially expected, and completely bio-degradable packaging. You’re doing yourself a disservice if you order from anywhere else! Thanks Snake River Farm!

I have now cooked three of these. They are awesome, excellent flavor, VERY tender. Mine ranged in weight from 2.8 lbs to 3.5 lbs. Will be ordering more soon.

Took at wrapped Tri tip out of the freezer to thaw in the refrigerator. I thought coming from Snake River the tri tip would be nicely vacuum sealed so I placed it directly on the bottom shelf. Two days later I pulled the tri tip out to season and found the bottom shelf loaded with blood from the tri tip. Package leaked and was not air tight. As for the taste of the tri tip, I'll review shortly after it's placed on the smoker.

Now I love tri-tip
I used to think tri-tip was just "ok" until I tried SRF american wagyu tri-tip. Now I keep the freezer stocked with them.
