Sirloin Tip Roast Smoked
The first time I bought one of these I cooked it all day in my Crock. I will say that making it as a slow cooker sirloin tip roast is beyond amazing too, but different. You won’t get any crispy texture on the outside unless you do so when it’s done in the oven.
Whether you are new to smoking meats or just want to try something new this cut is a great one to cook outside. We have a lot of dry rub recipes on our site to choose from but used a simple one as directed below with only a few ingredients. A bit sweet but savory too you can make it spicy if you like.

- Recently we upgraded to this Traeger pellet smoker and grill and love it.
- We started with an electric smoker that was a Charbroil which worked well to start with.
- These are the pellets we always have on hand and use for almost everything.
- This smoker cookbook has some more great ideas if you want to cook outside more regularly.
You can see the brown sugar and garlic mixture we made here, and what is necessary for it below. I added a bit of chili powder but just to counteract the sweetness. If you wanted to add heat I would use red pepper flakes or dry Sriracha. Start with 1/2 tsp and see at the end if you want to add more the next go around.
Traeger Sirloin Tip Roast
Unlike our sirloin tip roast Instant Pot style you’re going to get a nice crust on the outside cooking it this way. I’m a texture gal so that is big to every bite with me.
- 2-4 lb sirloin tip roast
- Sea salt and black pepper
- 2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- Meat thermometer to check temperature of roast near the end
How Long Does it Take to Smoke a Roast Per Pound
You should account for approximately 35 minutes per pound when the temperature is set to 225 degrees F. This will get you an internal temperature for a rare top sirloin roast. 40 minutes per pound will get you a medium rare to medium. These will yield a perfectly pink color inside, tender and easy to slice. You will also need to leave another 30 minutes to rest before slicing.
How to Smoke a Sirloin Tip Roast
These instructions are very similar to our smoked chuck roast recipe. Why mess with a good thing right?? I think a rub is a must. Sometimes I will add some sauce at the end but really with this you don’t need anything else. Make some side dishes about 30 minutes before this is done and dinner is ready
- Mix seasonings and brown sugar together and rub all around roast.
- Let roast sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Brush grate clean and place aluminum foil over base of smoker to help keep it clean.
- Set smoker to smoke setting. Once the smoker starts to smoke, set temperature to 225°.
- Place roast on grate and insert meat probe or meat thermometer.
- Cook until temperature reaches 135 degrees F internal temp, use a digital thermometer inserted into the center to do this.
- This took about 2 hours to get to that point with this weight. If it is not high enough, close lid and check every 15 minutes until it is just right for you.
- Remove the sirloin tip and let it sit 10 minutes before slicing
Ours was about 3 pounds so a few hours did the trick. Cook time will vary on a few things; how thick your piece is, how large, and how well done you want it to be in the very center too. No matter what the outside pieces are going to be more well done so if you have a few preferences in your house you’ll get a few in the same hunk.
Smoked Beef Roast
Like I said, many are prepped and smoked the same way. It’s not just a great method for beef though either. If you want a smoked pork roast that turns out delicious as well, and falls apart right in your mouth. Perfect if you want pulled meat tossed with some sauce and served on slider buns.
How long does smoked meat last in the fridge?
No matter what protein based easy Traeger recipe you make it lasts typically 4 days if packaged properly from the get go. You always want foods to cool down completely first, then store in a freezer bag with all the air sucked out. The air will dry it out so keep that in mind when packaging it up. Keep it whole too, and slice when you reheat.
How do you reheat smoked meat?
Once again with all cut of beef leftovers you want to keep them moist. Best way to do this is take it out 20 minutes before. Add into a pan on your stovetop with a bit of sauce or broth over medium heat with a lid. Let it steam until warmed again for a few minutes until hot.
Smoked Sirloin Tip Roast Recipe
If you have a few people to serve and thus buy a smaller piece, I might try our air fryer roast recipe too. You can use the same rub with a little olive oil on it first. The outside will create a very similar crust to it which is fantastic and doesn’t take as much time.
