Cant Find TriTip......

Discussion in 'Beef' started by jcollins, Jul 29, 2015.

  1. As said above i cant seem to find a TT ANYWHERE around my neck of the woods. So my question is: Does anyone know of a cut that is popular that will smoke pretty much the same as a TT? 

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Did you ask a butcher for it? My guess is there grinding it up or turning it into stew meat or stir fry. Good luck getting some. I don't really care for tenderloin but it's kind of close just not as tasty to me.
  4. Seems like some places call it sirloin tip? I could be wrong...(probably)

    The bottom section of Bottom Sirloin is the "tri tip."

    You can order it online from Snake River Farms. Buy 2 to save a few dollars and wait until they have free shipping deals which might be going on now.

  9. Yeah i already knew i could i just have issues with food like that being shipped its also a bit on the expensive side
    But thanks anyway

    SRF is expensive, although trying it once won't kill most pockets.  BTW: I've tried their tri-tip, oh baby it was great! If you are somewhat near a Whole Foods you can probably get their meat department to order some in.

    Here is my "London smoke". It was labeled London broil and I bought it because no one here has tri-tip either. Turned out awesome! I would venture to say that any tender, long course grain meat like this would do alright but then again that was my first beef smoke.

  14. that looks mighty tasty.... whats that rub you used on yours?

    Thank ya! I coated it in Worcestershire sauce and then rubbed it in big poppa smokers double steak rub. You can buy it from their site. Lotta good ribs on there.

  16. hmmm i haven't tried that one yet. and yeah i have seen their rubs i usually make my own or use Montreal steak seasoning for beef. saves money...

    First , where are you? You could find a butcher that will befriend you and ssho him the chart above... You may find a gold mine.
  20. If you find a good butcher, just remember to bring him/her some smoked meat samples to bribe.....errrr....I mean coax them to stock more tri tips or whatever cuts you are looking for.
