I finally found a couple around here but they are labeled as "California Tri-Tip" and are vac-packed with some kind of seasoning and marinade on them. I ain't real crazy about buying pre-seasoned/marinated meat because I like to do that myself. I have yet to be able to find any just plain ol raw tri-tips to try. I envy you guys that apparently have em falling off the shelves where you live. Same goes for flat-iron steaks. Around here they are all vac-packed with the pre-seasoning and marinade AND are MORE expensive than daggum rib-eyes...
