2 beef tri-tip (2-3 lbs each)

Marinade

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup canola oil

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons granulated onion

2 teaspoons dried parsley

2 teaspoons dried chives

1 teaspoon ground chipotle powder

1 teaspoon mild chili powder

Assemble all of the marinade ingredients into a small food processor or mortar and pestle. Pulse or grind until fully mixed. Place your tri-tips in a ziploc bag and cover with marinade. Remove as much air as possible from bag and place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat grill to medium high heat.  (I set my Traeger  to 275F)

Smoke until the internal temperature is 130F  (on a pellet grill this can be anywhere from 1 – 1.5 hours)

Remove from grill and rest tented with foil for 10 minutes.

Slice the beef thinly across the grain and serve with residual juices.
