FAQ Subject: I need instructions for cooking a 6 lb tri-tip roast

I have a 6lb. tri tip roast that I would like to barbecue on an outdoor gas grill using a rotisserie. Please give me instructions on how to tie it to the spit and how much to cook it.

Thank you.

WOW! Marty,

It's a good thing that you asked!

First, you can't barbecue on a gas grill. Second, you don't barbecue a tri-tip. (Click into "According to Smoky" from and read the "Glossary" for reasons why.) Third, if you stick a spit in it you will have an unwanted overcooked ring around an ugly hole in the center.

Tri-tip is best broiled or roasted. While in "According to Smoky" read "Pursuit of the Perfect Steak" for broiling technique. A 6 lb. tri-tip is PRETTY LARGE. You may have a sirloin tip, which is about the same. However, I would roast a piece of meat that size at around 350° for about 1 hour until the internal temp. reaches 140° then take it off and let it sit for 10 minutes while the juices set. If you rub it well with a mixture of 1 T. salt, 2 t. each garlic and onion powder, 1 t each ground bay, ground thyme, fresh ground black pepper and put it on a rack over a shallow pan with about 1/2" of water, you won't be disappointed. De glaze the juices while the roast is resting and serve on the side.

Slice the meat thinly across the grain.

Have fun,

The Barbecue Store
