Default Anyone ever buy TRI-TIP online??

I lived in CA for 7 years and grew accustomed to grabbing a tritip every time I visited the local store. I cannot find the meat anywhere in FL and none of the local butchers are willing to cut it for me. I just bought 6 lbs for 7.99/lb online but the cheapest shipping option was $47 + $12 handling. Now I'm up to $17.82/lb. Probably just a one time investment! Any solutions other than moving back out west (not that bad of an idea)?

Try Contacting Tom Pellizzetti @ 479-790-8133 Florida Grass fed beef. They are in Chipley but I get their beef here in Fort Lauderdale.

Do you have a Whole Foods store anywhere near you? I've seen tri-tip here in Jacksonville at the Manderin location before and I believe it was $7.99/lb.

Not here in Lake City but maybe in the gainesville or jacksonville area. I just noticed the pleasanton, Ca location. I lived in Walnut Creek and Moraga for those 7 years and sure do miss it.

Call and ask them the price cause I'd hate to steer you wrong, it was awhile back when I was there and I could be wrong on the price I mentioned.

At 17.82/lb you might branch out in your meat selection to save some cash. You could try smoked king crab legs, baby seal ribs, filet minion fatties...The options are endless!

If your location is correct and you are living in Florida, you should be able to get it through Publix. That is where I get it all the time here in Georgia. It is rare when it is in the display case. I have to ask at the meat counter and if they don't have it in the back, they get it for me within two days. Give your local Publix a try. Unfortunately, the price seems to go up every time I go there lately. Seems word is spreading.

I know the meat dept mgr at the local publix very well having coached his son but he said the demand for it here is too low for them to carry it. I have some good leads thanks to everyone's help and feel confident I will hook up with some good ole tri-tip at a reasonable price real soon.

I'll bet he would get them for you if you were willing to buy a case at a time.
