I feel your pain! I just found a local source for tri-tip. I think I buy them out every time I visit.

Looking good!
I'm tri-tipped out......I've been cooking them and having them in all sorts of ways during the week, taking advantage of the sale.....with plenty left-overs for sandwiches and tacos. :)))

Looks great. I moved to the midwest from CA and thought tri tip was everywhere. Don't see them too much in the stores around here. Our Commissary (nice to be retired Military) has them all the time, little pricey but I wait till they are in the freezer with reduced price then I buy every one of them.

It is the same here in DC. They must be a west coast thing. I noticed them this summer when I was out there. Sure looks good.

If you have Trader Joe's near you, they usually carry them. They carry several kinds, including naked/unmarinated ones. The beef is out of Australia and it's delicious.

Finally noticed some tri-tip at the Publix in Birmingham. What should I look for when picking some out? After seeing all these Western guys on here brag about, I want to see what all the fuss is about :-P
Also is it best smoked or grilled?

Where did you get your tri tip?
Have you tried Trader Joe's or Smart and Final?

I haven't cooked a tri tip in ages.

That looks good Ross but I guarantee that your tri Tip will be more tender and even better if you first trim off that silverskin and gristley part off the top before cooking and also remember to slice across the grain instead of the "one end to the other" slicing. I know several people that thought that Tri Tip was too tough but when they tried my well trimmed and properly sliced Tri Tip, they changed their mind.

Tri-Tip is cooked like a big old steak usually. I don't ever cook one for more than about 45-50 minutes. I like to cook them at about 375-400 until an IT of 125 and then give them a hot sear on both sides for a couple minutes each. IT will be about 130 or so, when IMO, it is perfectly rare.
