Fark, crawfish is even expensive live, anymore. My last boil was ridiculous.

I'm guessing tri-tip is suffering a similar "popularity tax."

$4.49/lb here for select, but they do a nice job of trimming it up, so it's mostly meat.

Yeah, I get it at C&C also when feeding a crowd. Costco for just The Family. Thing is I grew up on The Central Coast and have eaten 10,000 times my weight in tri tip so it's not my favorite cut. I'm going to The Central Coast this weekend and may pick up a load of red oak. My stash is getting used up.

In SoCal Ralphs occasionally puts untrimmed Tri-Tip on sale for $2.99, usually select grade, but last time it was choice. Secret trick: when Ralphs puts select grade TT on sale, look for a Ralphs "Fresh Fare", located in wealthier neighborhoods, Ralphs "FF" only sells choice grade(& above) and have the same sale prices. Tri-Tip is a good cut also because you can visually judge the marbling, not quite as easy as a Rib eye or strip, but you can tell how much fat is within the meat. Unfortunately, untrimmed Tri-Tips can have A LOT of fat hidden under the meat depending on how it was trimmed, but Ralphs will sell "Trimmed" TT for $1/lb more, and can be a better deal if you have to do too much trimming.

I usually cut a TT into 2 pieces along the grain, then into 2" steaks that get a gentle pounding before seasoning both sides for a hour or so rest before grilling.
