Just to clear this up...Picanha & Tri Tip are different...

Picanha is "rump cover steak". This cut of meat is from the primal loin, sub-primal sirloin. Actually what would have been the top half of a rump roast before block or square trimmed.

Tri Tip cut from the bottom sirloin primal. This is an individual muscle. There are only (2) per animal.

Two totally different cuts. Close to each other and high quality indeed, but not the same.
