Serves 4
For the Roast
(2 1/2-pound) beef tri tip roast
tablespoons olive oil
teaspoon kosher salt
teaspoon black pepper
teaspoon, garlic powder

Ingredient Tips

NO Sugar
Your rub and/or marinade should contain NO sugar. Sugar will cause your food to burn.


Prep: 10 Minutes, Cook: 40 Minutes

Power up The Big Easy® Oil-less Fryer.

Hot Tip: The Big Easy was designed to be powered ON (all the way to the left) and OFF (all the way to the right). All recipes for The Big Easy are based on operating the fryer at full power.

Combine olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a small bowl. Liberally rub onto all sides of the meat.


Place tri-tip roast in the roaster basket. Lower the basket into the cooking chamber. Insert a meat thermometer into the center of the meatiest part of the roast so that the dial is easy to read when the basket is in the cooker.

Hot Tip: To minimize sticking, coat the wire frame of the cooking basket with oil before inserting beef roast.

Cook until the internal temperature reaches 125°F, about 40 minutes. Cook time varies based on weather conditions and the size of your roast.

Hot Tip: Cover the fryer with the wire mesh lid during the first or last 15 minutes of the cook for crispy skin, using infrared heat reflected back into cooking chamber. If used throughout cook, this heat can burn food before it is fully cooked.

Lift the roaster basket out of the chamber and set it on a shallow sheet pan. When the basket is cool to the touch, remove the tri-tip, leaving the thermometer in place. Set the roast on a platter and loosely tent with aluminum foil for 10 to 15 minutes while the internal temperature rises to 135°F.

Hot Tip: Giving your roast the time it needs to rest, allows juices to redistribute, retaining moisture for tender meat. The internal temperature will continue to rise before it evens out.

Slice across the grain and serve.

    What do you do with the wood chips? Where do you put them?

      Apologies Derik. This recipe was written for a previous model of the The Big Easy, the SRG (Smoker Roaster & Grill). The SRG had a smoke box to hold the wood chips.

      Nice catch! The recipe is updated, thanks to you.
