Santa Maria BBQ Pit and a Tri Tip

Been wanting a Santa Maria grill for a while and finally went and picked one up today. I had to break it in with a tri tip and red oak logs. Had to use my phone for the pics so they aren't that great.

20 X 30 Santa Maria style BBQ grill


Tri tip cooking away with a few sides. Corn, yellow peppers and some ranch style beans


While the tri tip was resting I put on some garlic bread


My plate. Weather is suppose to be outstanding so I gonna have fun this weekend figuring out how to cook on this grill!

Nice! With a little mesquite would make some super fine Texas ribeyes. But you do have some great looking food on there.

Re: Santa Maria BBQ Pit and a Tri Tip

Nice looking grill Vermin. I don't use my Santa Maria BBQ pit that much anymore. We only have three of us here for dinner at the most and half the time it's just my wife and myself. The SM style pit takes a lot of fuel and I can cook a couple of tri-tips on the Performer, snuff the coals and still have leftover charcoal for the next cook. Looking forward to more posts.

Re: Santa Maria BBQ Pit and a Tri Tip

Outstanding! That's some really good looken grub. If you get an afternoon make a journey up to Irvine. You can get a years worth of oak. They got a pile of Red, White and Live Oak. You can pick our the red if you like. I just cook on all of it. Red is the strongest flavor then white and live oak has almost no flavor, that's what they cook over at the Salt Lick in Texas. It's the scrap pile and the pieces are perfect for our SM Grills. You can fill the back of your truck about 2 feet wide from tail light to tail light to the top of the bed for about $30 Bucks.
