Low will work but need low finish internal temp (125 to 130).

Tri- Tip

Well I am new here, but found a post that I know something about ... Tri Tip.... Cooked alot of it when I lived in Calf many years ago.. and it was a cheaper cut of meat, but it seems it is not anymore

Where I live, most butchers kinda look at ya cockeyed when you ask for the name Tri-tip ... When I have found it I have been quoted as high as $9.99 a pound .. I dont think I'd be ordering that piece of meat at that price.. I normally find it for $3.99 a pound at either a local butcher, who I do work for, or when I'm lucky enough to get a pass into a Wholesale Restuarant place .. If you butcher is errr ummm aaaaaaaaa uneducated, just ask him how much first... Most of em want to hit a home run because it's part of the Sirloin.. when the reality of it is, that they usually make hamburger meat out of the Tri-Tip, or shish kabobs for those who do that kind of business...

the meat number you can order tri tip from your butcher is IMPS/NAMP 1185C & 1185D... if you like it trimmed order the 1185D, it is trimmed of fat... I prefer mine with the fat...

Godd Luck to ya

Bob

Ok, I've never seen a Tri-Tip in a supermarket. Any of you Texas boys ever seen it before?

Hey Blaze......... not sure where you 're from in Calif, but if you;re close to Santa Maria , they have a pretty big Tri-Tip festival there every year that's pretty coll to attend..... in fact most of the restuarants in that town and the surrounding towns, and valleys serve it regularly ..

good luck to ya

You guys kill me.... I am gonna shut up, be happy, and brag about my 2.59 a pound at Costco untrimmed. At the commissary I can get it for 3.19 trimmed. I prefer the trimmed. =D> But...thanks for driving up the price for me! I just about cussed out loud at Trader Joe's when I saw the price they were selling at. I remember it was priced at 15 bucks and for that same size and all I could get it for half that in town. At the same time...I am happy the word is getting out on this cut and style of BBQ.

Yeah, small indeed. I grew up Lompoc. Finished up college in Thousand Oaks... My brother went to school at UCSB. He had some roommates that went to Brooks, he lived right behind City College at the time. But, Santa Barbara is one of my favorite places. American Riviera and Tri Tip right in my backyard, can't beat that! Where do you live now?

BOB-
Yeah, Vandenberg AFB...no so secret anymore though. When you say wayyyyyy back when...what years? If you go back now, across the street from JC Penny's...there was an old department store, Montgomery-Ward. They have a huge BBQ trailer pit and turn out BBQ every weekend there. I mean there are still others that BBQ and sell on the main drag. Where I live they have at least 4-5 BBQs going every weekend year round.

Thanks Joker. Good site for information. Guess I'll check it out at the local butcher. I'll price select and choice and report back.

when I have gone to bigger supermarket chains, to ask for Tri-tip, they are moslty clueless... I also ask them to check to see how much it costs to order, then give them the number to see if they are authorrized to even order it... return in a few days and not one of them can order it, or the price was ridiculously high..like $7.99-9.99 a pound. local butchers are a different story.. I've told a few of them that am using it to BBQ for a function, or event, or gathering, and ALWAYS bring them back a few slices to taste.. If you go in making them think you know what you are talking about, the price will genereally come down to something more reasonable..$3.99-$4.99 a pound. after all, they do order the bottom sirloin for London broils at around $2.99, wholesale, and normally end up grinding the Tri=Tip down with the rest of the hamburger meat.. Dont be afraid to tell em you willing to only pay $3.99 a pound for it .. ya never know waht will happen
