This unique cut is a cross between a prime rib and a brisket – amazingly juicy with exceptional flavor and tenderness. Great for a smaller group, our 2-3-pound Certified Akaushi Beef tri tip feeds 3-4 people and cooks in about 3 hours, compared to an 11-pound brisket which can take 12 hours to smoke. Our favorite way to cook tri tip? On the barbeque pit, Texas style
. You can also cook it in the oven at 250-300 degrees or in the slow cooker. Season well with salt, pepper and barbeque seasoning to amplify the flavor. Tri tips average 3 pounds.
