Tri Tip

Went to Costco to get some meat for my daughter's Birthday party tomorrow and needed to get some meat for skewers and I found Tri Tip. I've never seen it the way I found it, it looks almost like Country Style ribs. Anyways, I'm gonna slice this up and marinade overnight and skewer and grill tomorrow. I've heard everyone rave about this stuff so I hope it turns out well. Anyone else ever seen it cut like this before?

I was at a buddy's house last summer and he had a tri tip that he had cut into steaks that looked like that. I can't tell how thick those are from the picture. He had cut his about an inch thick and he grilled them with salt, pepper, and garlic. They were really good.

Yeah Zilla, I got it a couple weeks ago. I decided to hold off on a bigger cooker right now and bought another WSM. Now I have two and can cook quite a bit on them to hold me over.

I think you get shot in my parts if you sell it like that...

WAY too much.

Tri Tip per poundage:
$2.49 is the low with fatness
$2.99 is the average
$3.99 should be the most you pay, no fat.
$4.99 the stuff better be GOOD.
Anything over that... Ummm Hmmmm

Thom or deputy, what do you pay where you live???

Larry, I have always cooked mine up like a london broil, just sliced real thin after the cook. I'll bet grilled up like that you will end up with a real nice steak. I wouldn't marinade it, just salt, pepper, onion pwder and grlic powder and grill. Happy Birthday to your daughter.

Puff,

The only place I've ever seen Tri-Tip around here is at Costco and that is not on a consistent basis.

Now there is a Trader Joes in Rochester Hills, that I am going to check this week one day and I'll let you know if they have it. If they do, I can assure you that it will be fairly pricy.

Okay I've done a little research here since I've never seen much less cooked a tri tip before. What I have are Tri Tip Steaks versus what the Tri Tip Roast which is what I think everyone is referring to. I did ask the guy at Costco if they sold the Roasts and he said no, all they had were bags of the Steaks. I'm guessing since these are smaller cuts being "steaks" vs. the whole "roast" is why the price was higher? Either way, I hope they turn out good. I sliced them in strips last night for the skewers and they are marinading in KC Masterpiece Honey Teriyaki to go on the grill later today. I'll let ya'll know how they turn out, keep your fingers crossed!!!

I paid $3.99 for the stuff I got a few weeks ago. I think that I also got the tri tip steaks. Oh well, very tasty.
