Tri-tip by Lady Carnivory


I made this smoked tri-tip from @marfameats and… wow!

Here’s the rub:

1 T smoked paprika
1 T instant coffee
1 T sea salt
1/2 T pepper

Here’s the deets:
  1. Massage the rub into 2lb of your Marfa Meats Tri-tip (you can wrap, refrigerate, and allow the rub to marinate into meat for 2 hours up to overnight but you will want to pull the meat out to come to room temp before moving onto step 2)
  2. Set smoker to 225F and use a strong wood like oak or hickory (I did half and half) for your chips
  3. Smoke until internal temperature reaches 110F for rare (this took an hour for me)
  4. Melt 2 T butter in a cast iron pan over medium-high heat
  5. Sear tri-tip on both sides until well-browned and meat reaches desired doneness temp
  6. Allow to rest for 5 minutes (or as long as your will-power allows) and slice against the grain

Serves 2-4 (or one Lady Carnivory)
