    Costco usually carries a couple of different cuts of tri-tip in cryovac bags. I know one is marinated, I can't remember if both brands are though.

    Oh yeah - they really aren't "butchers" in my opinion. Not surprised at the lack of knowledge about the tri tip. I've asked at the meat counter of both my local grocery stores and neither of those "butchers" knew what a tri tip was either. Chances are they only know about the cuts that the company sends them. Still haven't had a chance to go to the local farmer's market - they have some stands occupied by 'real' butcher shops. Would be interested to see if they speak tri tip or not.

    I am a member at Sam's and I asked the butcher there if they had tri tips. He had no clue what a tri tip was.

    I haven't been too disappointed with the selection at my local Sam's. Costco is about 25 miles away, so I don't get there often.

    I'm with you on Cash & Carry, better selection and prices than Costco. The Chairmans Reserve (Tyson) SL ribs have always been attractively priced, and they had Angus full briskets a couple of weeks ago for $3.29. The mini-brisket I got at Costco a few weeks before was over $6/lb.

    I should add that my brother in Tucson got a membership with his BBQ team business card.

    150% on board with Costco for meat. Can't beat the price on St. Louis. They sometimes have really ridiculous specials on rib-eyes too. I've walked away with 4 ridiculous 1.5-2 inch thick cuts for obscenely low prices.

    When I moved from CA to PA and in with my GF, I was completely bummed that the closest Costco was 20 miles a way. Lo and behold, a year in and they built a new one 5 miles away. They stock a little differently based on the local demographics, but it's still Costco.

    Can you gents copy these comments to a new review thread? Ideally we'll have a separate review thread for every Retailer/Supermarket.

    Yes, but I got a membership through a charity. Where there is a will, there is a way. Just be a little creative. From there website:

    *Restaurant Depot is wholesale only. To qualify for a free membership account, on your first visit you need to show a valid reseller's permit (business license) or tax-exempt certificate (for a non-profit organization) and show proof that you are authorized to purchase for said business or organization.

    I just showed them the tax certificate from the charity (I was the president of the local chapter at the time) and got it in five minutes.

    Yes. Yes you should. The last two houses I bought I checked to make sure they were close to a Costco. That's how much I like it.
