  4. Let rest for 45 Minutes to 1 Hour
  5. After resting prepare grill
  6. Sear the Non Fat side of the Tri Tip first for 4 to 6 minutes
  7. Sear the Fat side of the Tri Tip for 4 to 6 minutes
  8. After searing move the Tri Tip off to the side of the grill for indirect cooking. If your grill has multiple burners turn one off and move the Tri Tip over the end burner that has been turned off.

Honey Mustard Balsamic Bourbon Glaze

1. In a sauce pan over medium heat, whisk together 3 cups bourbon and 1 cup prepared mustard.


2. Continuing to whisk, add 1 cup brown sugar. Whisk until the sugar is blended completely.


3. With heat still set to medium, add 2 cups honey stir to thoroughly blend. Add ½ cup of orange juice with ¼ cup of Balsamic Vinegar. Simmer the bourbon sauce for 20 minutes. It is important to allow the sauce to simmer for this length of time or the bourbon will overpower the other ingredients.


4. Remove bourbon sauce from heat. You may use it immediately over Tri Tip, pork or beef, or allow to cool to room temperature and store sauce in a covered glass container in refrigerator.
