I scored three untrimmed Rancher's Reserve Tri-Tips from Vons for $2.97 a lb ;D



After trimming the fat cap top hat on all three :D



One was rubbed with gun powder



One was rubbed with Pinch of Sizzle All Purpose Rub



And one was rubbed with Hickory smoked kosher salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and ground white pepper



All three vac sealed and into the chest freezer

im jealous.  we can't really get tri-tip here in omaha.

i was talking to a guy in the meat dept. at hyvee, he said they don't get them, but there is another cut they do have that is very similar. 

anyone know what that equivalent might be off the top of their head?

Lake Naciamento is now 100% full and Lake San Antonio is over 70% as of last Friday, more I am sure today, new figures are not out.  Should be good water sports and camping for you and your family this year.

Old Hickory that is great news! The last time I was there the lake was so low.
Where I was standing for the picture was under water a few years ago.
