Grilled Tri-Tip Roast

Tri-tip is also called bottom sirloin tip roast. It  is  perfect for barbecuing and grilling.
Tri-tip can be very tough when cooked past medium. To get a great piece of meat with expressive meaty texture and flavor it needs to be cooked low and slow on indirect heat. Tri-tip is a thick piece of meat and  to get flavor to penetrate the meat it needs to be marinated with any favorite marinade or spice rub.
