I've had that happen to me several times down here in Austin, where I'll ask a so called butcher if he can get me a TT, he goes in the back, cuts something up, and brings it out, I'm looking at him wierd, and saying "that's not a Tri-Tip, he swears up and down it is, but it's really not.
it's mississippi. i'm sure it's a sub-par tri-tip.
Large BGE, Small BGE, Mini BGE, Weber 22.5 OTG, yellow thermapen, pink thermapen (no shame in my game)
it's all so clear now. he doesn't know what facts are.
