trimmed-mean PCE
The detailed PCE report, from which the Dallas fed calculates the trimmed-mean version, is typically released around the last day of the next month or the first of the month after that; the September PCE report, for example, may well be in the hands of the FOMC when it meets at the end of this month, but I believe it's not going to be released publicly until the day after the meeting, and the folks who calculate the trimmed-mean version won't get such special access.

There will be a PCE number released with the advanced GDP report a day or two earlier, but there's not enough detail provided with that, I believe, for the Dallas fed to work its magic.
