A while back Cosco corp. decided to stop stocking Tri-tips in midwest stores. So for whatever reason they sent 5 cases to one of the stores nearby, and we come to find out that if you want to buy them by the case (24 roasts) they shave almost 2 bucks off a pound, bringing them to 3.75 a pound. :woohoo: Since they stopped carrying them my only alternative has been the local meat shop at 8 something a pound(frozen). :huh: and the damn porterhouses in the case are only $11-$12.
So don't be afraid to ask even the largest shop in town for a bargain. :)
Might have to burn a couple at the ice fest. B)
