Just got some bad news

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

from my bulk Tri-tip supplier, there will be no great sales anymore!!!!!!!! All last year I was paying right around $3 a pound for bulk Tri-tip. Right now its hanging right at $4.00-$4.25. Usually before big weekends like Memorial day it goes on sale but this past weekend it didn't. So it looks like we'll be burning less Tri-tip this year :icon_cry::icon_cry::icon_cry:

The butchers cut it up and call it bottom round... Ask your butcher at sams Costco your local butcher for the whole tri- tip

Yep! The big packs that I typically but are above $4 pound. The angus packs that have two tri tips per pack are just above $5. Ours isn't going to have any sales in them this summer!

No SAMs here. Costco has tri tip here but it's $8.99 per pound. So my go to bulk supplier is still less expensive at $4. Just was so used to paying $3! The packs I buy have around 20 pounds of tri tip.

I think it's everywhere Case ! Seems as prices only have one direction, ^^^^^^^^. And it stinks ! They'll probably form another government agency to study it so prices will go up even more ! LOL. There's my rant ! biggrin.gif

$6.99/lb is now the sale price for tri-tips at my local grocer.

 

Was at Costco last weekend and picked up two Choice grade tri-tips for $6.99/lb.  Prime was $9.99/lb.  I held the two grades right next to each other and frankly I could not tell any difference in the marbling.   In the past I could easily pick out the difference between the two grades.  I actually went to Costco to splurge and get the Prime grade to treat my wife to her favorite cut of beef for the holiday, but went with Choice instead.

Yeah , a poor man like me can't afford much more than Chicken (unless I get a present of Beef from someone) . And it sucks , big time :icon_exclaim: :icon_mad: .

 

Oh, well . Go and have fun with whatever you can get and as you do . . .

I guess I'll never get to try Tri Tips. It's not a normal thing around my neck of the woods, but if it was it would have to be cheaper than I can get Prime Rib. If they're both the same price, I'll take a well marbled Choice Prime Rib every time.

Bear I promised to send Smokin B a tri tip. Since you both live on the Eastside maybe I'll send two and you guys can have a smoke out!!!

I guess I shouldn't be complaining at $4 a pound that's still cheaper than all the other stores. I was just loving that $3 a pound price last year!

All the tri tips I do are choice and they are excellent!

You can be the tri tip king pin of the US! I'm sure there will be plenty of demand for your services.
