Santa Maria Style Barbecue is a regional culinary tradition

dating back to the mid-19th century from the Santa Maria Valley.

It is centered around Tri Tip Sirloin dry rubbed with special Santa Maria Seasoning. 

The Tri Tip is then placed on a hand cranked iron grill which is lifted or lowered to keep the meat at the perfect temperature while cooking over a Red Oak wood fire.

Today it is regarded as a mainstay of California’s culinary heritag
