Light your Pit Barrel® according to the instructions.
Remove the tri-tip from the package, let rest until room temperature, and coat all sides liberally with the Beef & Game Pit Rub.
Place one hook through the center of the wide end of each roast (about 2-3 inches from the end).
Hang the roast(s) from the rods in the Pit Barrel®, leaving space between each, and secure the lid.
Cook approximately 45 minutes, or until the center of the thickest part of each roast reaches the appropriate internal temperature for your desired doneness (125º for medium-rare — shown using the ThermoWorks Thermapen®).
Remove the roast(s) from the Pit Barrel®, and the hooks from the tri-tip.
Cut across the grain into ¼ to ½ inch slices to serve.
