Grilled Smoked Tri-Tip

Tri-tip is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin that became popular as a local specialty in Santa Maria, California (according to Wikipedia).  According to us, it is really good, quality steak.  We grilled it this night by adapting the recipe “Smoked Santa Maria Tri-Tip” from one of our favorite grilling cookbooks.  Adding hickory smoke while the beef grills is a great way to layer another level of flavor to the dish.  The garnish of fresh salsa with tomato, green chiles, green onions, cilantro, etc. adds even more flavor.
