Trimmed or Untrimmed Tri-Tip

Hi everyone, I'm grilling Tri-Tip beef for the first time and can't tell whether or not my butcher trimmed the fat layer from the bottom-side of the piece. Any help would be appreciated.

It looks trimmed to me!

Thanks. That's what I thought, but I wanted to double check.

Yes, that looks trimmed. I wouldn't remove any more fat as this will help with your flavor and moisture. Don't over cook it to prevent drying out. Cook over medium high heat, with a good amount of seasoning.....
