Oh Boy.Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy OH Boy OH BOY!!!
Finally have a grocer here that is stocking Tri Tip on a trial basis.
I'll do my part by buying a few..
Smoking time this weekend!!!
No good concerts anymore. Frampton was here a few weeks ago and i have to say he's a much better guitar player now.
sent son to the store and he called and said they have 2 left.(sale started this am) got 1 at 3.66 lbs and 1 at 3.45 lbs.
Choice black angus ,$4.99 lb. should i let them age a week or two in the fridge ?
You lucky dog!
I have been getting them from Trader Joe's in MD, only problem is they are trimmed (I like to trim my own). The price is ok from there. To get them untrimmed I have to order them from the butcher at my local grocer but the cost is through the roof. Same with packers since I live in a heavy Jewish area (they only eat trimmed flats I am talking no fat cap or anything) I have to order ahead of time and pay a high cost or drive to Baltimore or Virginia. Not worth the drive right now.
Enjoy those tri tips, they are a great cut.
Ahron, as Big Twig told you, the tri tip comes from the bottom sirloin butt which is commonly separated into the ball tip, the flap, and the tri tip. They were quite affordable until the secret got out and they became so popular.
Good luck and good smoking.
Here ya go Ahron, this is what Twig and Merv are talking about, maybe you can copy this and take it to your butcher.
