Please tell me there is a store/butcher in NC that sells Tri Tip roasts! Not the ones in the packages that are already marinated---a real piece of fresh meat. I have been looking for the last month with no luck. Harris Teeter said they do carry them sometimes but I've yet to find one! Any ideas? I've been told this cut of meat is a west coast thing. I sure hope not as it is a great roast!

For those of you unfamiliar with the cut - Tri-tip - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks for Clarifying that for me. I have been so use to going to any store in CA to purchase a Tri Tip it just never occured to me it would not be as easy to find one here. And the flavor is outstanding!!!

Try Lowes grocrey stores. I was told from the butcher in Mooresville that the ones in Huntersville or Cornelious will still carry them. We do find them from time to time and stock up when we do get them.I was also told by the butcher that we can order them special within the grocrey store but have not had to do that. I am also wondering if Trader Joes may have them as they did in Calif.
Good luck, all of our new friends here when introduced to that cut of meat just loves it!!

Okay....I did locate a Lowes grocery store about 16 miles from my home. I suppose I should call them first and ask. Thanks for this information. Yes, everyone I have prepared this roast for loves it also. It just has so much flavor!!! I didn't know Trader Joes carried them in CA but it sure would be worth a try calling and asking the Trader Joes here.

Earth Fare has them, here in Asheville, at the South Asheville location. Harris Teeter also carries them, but they are the marinated type.

I'm not sure where you're from in NC, but if you're in the Charlotte or surrounding area I am positive you can give the guys at The Peach Stand in Fort Mill, SC a call and they'll have one ready for you when you arrive, their custom Butcher Shop is great!!
