I've been hearing about how delicious tri tip is on this forum and figured I'd call around and see if anyone had it. I live near Royal Oak, none of the local grocery stores had it including Costco. I finally found it at RJ's down in Detroit right next to Eastern Market. If you've never been to the gratiot central market, it's amazing! Imagine 10 different specialty butcher shops in the same gigantic building! It's a meat lover's paradise! Pricing is all significantly less than any local grocery store. Happy smoking!
