Cut Tri-Tip into 2 pieces for more smoke area.
Jack Stack Steak Rub, salt and pepper.
~2 hours on MES smoker at 200F to get smoke flavor. Apple wood.


Into Dutch Oven with potatos, carrots, onions, garlic, wine, etc. 12 briquettes bottom heat. Put on DO lid.
Windy and cool day. Dutch Oven is in Brinkmann Smoke N' Grill as a wind break.


Slow cook 1 1/2 to 2 hours and bring in kitchen.


Ready to eat with gravy. Mighty good vittles.
Credit goes to the wife, Paula, for getting everything ready for me.
