"butcher" beef cuts in Michigan?

I don't know if you read about the Butcher cut beef, but they're usually cuts that are usually just as flavorful and tender most of the time as the more regular cuts. They just not as pretty basically, they don't always cut into nice even steaks.

I've always tried to find these overlooked cuts of beef but it seems either I cant even find them or when I do they're not really any cheaper than anything else. Flat iron steak is a great example. this used to be on of the butcher cuts until it was outed and now you can get it for any less money then a sirloin.

Some of the cuts I'm talking about are for example, Tri Tip, Hangar steak, Flap Meat, I think there a few others but that's all I can think of off the top of my head. I think I've seen Hangar steak but I'm pretty sure that's not cheap either, seems to be going the way of the Flat Iron.

So are there any stores, butcher shops, local markets whatever that has some of these cuts for a reasonable price?

I'm trying to get my beef fix on the cheap.
