No Bearcarver Tri tip tutorial???

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

What is the meaning of this outrage? I see all of these awesome tri tips in the carousel, so I go consult my smoking dictionary (Bear's sig) and what do I find? Everything but tri tip! What's going on here, Bear? Consider this an online petition!

I'll sign that petition Beer.gif


Although I must say, If I could get Tri Tip here you would see more of

them on the carousel. grilling_smilie.gif

I'm in the same boat up here in Boston. Never heard of a tri tip until about 5 or 6 years ago, and I've still never seen one. I'm hoping to find a butcher that'll carry that cut, but I think I'm just as likely to find ground unicorn around here.

Dont know where da bear be but down here in bayou country there is no such thing as tri tip. Butchers won't even cut em.

It's a west coast cut, I've only had one and it was flown in at the last gathering by Brian from California.

It was awesome!

I'm originally from Calif, Tri Tip in every store. Since moving to PA some 20 years ago i aint seen one. My butcher says .....oh yeah i can get em if you want the whole case....I dont think so maynard.

Up until  the past year the butchers around here did not know what Tri-Tip was. I ask many about them since I lived in Ca. for 18 yer.  and ate them all of the time along with those Santa Maria beans. last year Sam`s club got some in by mistake and I bought  4 or 5 of them and the next week they were gone and never to be seen again. They can be tough as a brisket if you do not smoke or bbq them right but done right they are wonderful...

I would be happy to help any of you who need a TriTip. We can ship it with dry ice to anywhere you need. Just cover my cost and it is yours. TriTips average about $4 # and the average portion is about 3-4 pounds.

What can I say?


Waiting for Bear's tri tip tutorial.




Good luck and good smoking.

Hey guys, why don't you order a case, cost about $150, ...and then split it among 4-5 of ya that are close together and you got tri-tip, grill it to 135° with some salt, pepper, garlic powder, wrap it in foil and take it to your butcher, I'll bet after he tastes it you'll have tri-tip all of the time, ...that's what I did and we have it here every day.   biggrin.gif


Meat, I pay $3.15/lb and it's coming from New Zealand, ...I feel good!!!

I bet Bear can't get tri tip or he would have a tutorial on smoking it.

Wow, I knew they were a west coast thing, but I didn't think they'd be so exclusive. I may need to look into importing some. I'll check with a couple local butchers first

post #14 of 22

Talk to your local Sam`s club butchers they may be able to order them...Somebody send Bear a Tri-Tip.....I would but I can`t get them.

Yes Bear needs a tip about Tri-Tips.  Although a Tri Tip done up Santa Maria style is a slice of heaven.

post #16 of 22

Sooo Sad!  th_crybaby2.gif Seems I have cornered the market in my area!  I have Tri- Tips in our case every day now and people are starting to catch on finally.  Reminds me!...I need to have a loss leader sale on Tri Tips and do some demos in the store again!  Samples anyone??? yahoo.gif

Somebody send this Bear a Tri-tip pleeeeeeeeease !!!!!!!

post #19 of 22

It really amazes me that tri tip is not available all over the US.


We get it here occasionally & it sells out immediately.


I look for it every time I'm in the grocery store.


We don't have any butcher shops here in Highlands County, so I can't ask my local butcher to get me one.

i am north of boston. i found 1 buthcer that has tri tip steaks - no good for smoking.

i then found a butcher in beverly that cut the tri tip off the whole serloin for me - it was great!

I think the meat store will order it.
