Default Where to find Tri-Tip

I really want to do a tri-tip but not sure where to find it in our area. We are sadly lacking in the local butcher shops. We have grocery stores (Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Lowes) and Sam's, Restaurant Depot and Wal-Mart. Any ideas where might be a good place to look? or what other names it would fall under?

I would definitely check RD, and if you don't see it I would ask.

Most Restaurant Depots will have them, but in cryovac packs of about 10-12. Costco usually has them in two-packs.

If you don't have any good butcher shops near by, TJ's should have tri-tips. Just be sure to get the un-marinated ones. They usually carry multiple tri-tips marinated in different seasonings. They should also carry naked ones and they'll be from Australia.

I agree. I lived in the south for about five years and nobody every heard of the tri tip cut. I smoked a tri tip two weeks ago and it came out great. Best of luck on your ventures with the tri tip.

Surprisingly I have seen fresh cuts in Publix like the tri-tip and fresh butts and brisket packers, flats, and points.

What I mean by fresh is that they are not in the cryovac, I think they are trimming out and wrapping in house. If you have a Publix, check with them. I think they have spread out that far north but maybe not.

No Publix yet but we have two signs in the area "Publix coming soon."

Thanks all for the advice. I will probably try at our usual grocery places and if I can't find any there go to TJ's then RD.

The quest is on to try this cut of meat everyone raves about.

HEB sells ribs like this in no cryo. They buy them in the cryo, remove them from the cryo and rewrap them. Then they add $.50 to the cost per pound and sell the hell out of them....... Genious!
