Prepare the spice mix by combining the chili powder (your favorite brand) with the paprika, onion and garlic. Separate mixture into 4 equal parts or “dumps”. Put the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

Brown the tri-tip (in small batches) in oil and drain. Add the meat to a large pot with 1 cup of the sauce and the first “dump”. Simmer for 45 minutes. Add 1 cup of sauce and a “dump” every 45 minutes thereafter and continue to simmer pot. Fifteen minutes after your last “dump” add the cumin and salt mixture.

Make necessary adjustments to taste with cumin, salt, and Crystal Hot Sauce.

Stir chili pot 3 times to the left before turning in.
