Where do you find brackets that accommodate the 1/2" inset on either side of the triple-ply beam compared to the width of the 6x6 post? Any suggestions for a good bracket to look for?

Simpson strongtie has a BCS 3x6. It accommodates the shortage from 3 2x compared to a 6x6. I am in the same boat. My store does not have the BCS 3x6 and I am not going to wait for delivery. I think I am going to put 1/2" spacers in between my boards. I already bought the post cap that fits the 6x6 but I will not be using a 6x on top for my beam. I think the spacers will give the beam air to dry when it gets rained on.
