Costco: different states, different tri tips?

Claudette | Apr 10, 2013 06:28 PM

We moved to AZ recently, and the tri tip at Costco here is longer, flatter, thinner, and has only a one-way grain, whereas the ones in CA (near SF) were shorter, thicker, and had two grain directions. Is this a different cut with the same name, or a differently cut tri tip? I haven't cooked it yet, so can't comment on the flavor or texture yet. Would like to hear your experiences.
