Big Poppa’s Tri Tip Sandwich

Course: Main Course   Cuisine: American   Prep Time:    Cook Time:    Servings:


Tri tip

Big Poppa’s Double Secret Seasoning

Ciabatta Baguette

Kewpie Mayo

Shredded Lettuce


Pepper Jack Cheese

Thinly sliced sweet onions

Thinly sliced tomatoes

Big Poppa’s Jallelujah Jalapeno Seasoning

Horseradish Sauce (optional)


Preheat your smoker to 250°F (120°C) for that perfect, smoky flavor.

Liberally season the tri tip with Big Poppa’s Double Secret Seasoning. Allow the seasoning to sweat on the meat while you prepare other ingredients.

Once the smoker is ready, place the seasoned tri tip inside. Flip the tri tip midway through the cooking process for even flavor distribution.

Once the tri tip is cooked to perfection, let it rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a juicy sandwich.

While the tri tip is resting, toast the Ciabatta Baguette with a touch of butter and garlic until golden brown.

Spread Kewpie Mayo on the toasted Ciabatta Baguette.

Layer shredded lettuce, thinly sliced tomatoes, and sweet onions on the bottom half of the bread.

Add slices of smoked tri tip, followed by slices of pepper jack cheese and avocado.

Sprinkle Big Poppa’s Jallelujah Jalapeno Seasoning over the avocado for an extra kick.

If desired, spread a layer of horseradish sauce on the top half of the Ciabatta Baguette for a tangy flavor boost.

To make cutting easier and keep everything together, wrap the assembled sandwich in plastic wrap. Then, cut into portions suitable for serving.

Unwrap your Big Poppa’s Tri Tip Sandwich, serve it up, and get ready to enjoy a flavor explosion with every bite!
