Don’t let the word “smoked” scare you away from this recipe. With the right equipment, beef tri-tip can be smoked on the stovetop in less than 30 minutes! All you need is a good dry rub and a stovetop smoker with a few mesquite “chips”. The stovetop smoker that we use is the Cameron Smoker. As you can see in the pictures below, ours has had a lot of use over the years. We’ve had it for about 30 years and it’s been a great little smoker for year round smoking of proteins such as beef, duck, turkey, pork, and fish. This Smoked Beef Tri-Tip with Bourbon Sauce is my favorite thing to smoke but only just a little ahead of alder smoked wild salmon.
