What is Santa Maria Style BBQ?


Santa Maria Style Barbecue is a regional culinary tradition

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

and is today regarded as a mainstay of California’s culinary heritage.



Santa Maria Style Barbecue centers around beef tri-tip seasoned with special Santa Maria Seasoning. The beef 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 Red Oak wood fire.
