    The bulk pack (untrimmed) is not tenderized. I really don’t have an issue with the tenderizing but I’m in the minority.

    I feel bad for you and your COSTCO

    This is good to know. I have never bought one. I love looking at the marbling - sometimes opting for Choice over Prime. I can’t see that on their seasoned roasts. Thanks for the review.

    Guess I'm lucky with my local Costco. They always seem to have prime tri-tip on hand.

    Blade tenderized? Never heard of that. Costco around here always has lots of TriTip, trimmed, untrimmed, individual, 3 pack, prime and choice. Are these Blade Tenderized labeled as such?

    After years of soaking up info from this forum and the main AR page I never buy pre-seasoned meat anymore. Had one of them probably 5 years ago, and as I recall it was tasty.

    Tri-tip has a great beefy flavor. Doesn’t need all the stuff most pre-marinated ones have. Traditional Santa Maria tri-tip is seasoned only with salt, pepper, and garlic…and cooked over a red oak fire.

    My Costco rarely has pre-seasoned ones these days, but always has nekid ones - usually Choice and Prime cuts - but they’re all blade tenderized. 🤦🏽 I’ve heard that some Costcos are phasing out that technique, but mine hasn’t yet.

    SV is the way to go with most Costco beef, as it’s blade tenderized. Safe and medium rare are both attainable with SV!

    We only see the pre seasoned ones in our Costco. I've never tried them.

    You could plan to add some smoke in the reverse before searing.

    I have tried the Costco pre seasoned, but prefer the non. They are flavored just too much from the marinade, the meat is a little mushy and way too salty. The beefy flavor is lost.

    My COSTCO has an unblemished record of never, ever having tri-tip. I've given up hope and the meat workers there (hard to call them butchers) are now avoiding my questioning why. So I buy tri tip at a local purveyor but have never see one pre-seasoned there. Please keep us posted on your cook. I know I'm curious to see how yours turns out.

    rickgregory yes when I get them from my butcher they are prime grade and melt in your mouth tender. A favorite cut. I was just commenting on the Costco prepackaged product.

    If you have a sous vide setup you can also SV to temp, then grill to get the crust. The advantage is that the whole thing, skinny tip to thicker end will be the same doneness when you start grilling
