Santa Maria BBQ Earns Wandermelon Raves

Santa Maria Style Barbecue is in the spotlight once again as online travel authority Wandermelon has published a magnificent feature story on California’s Barbecue Capital.

Here’s how author Jessica Matteson begins her story: “While Memphis and Kansas City might dominate the nation’s psyche as the finest barbecue around, the best kept secret of a finger-lickin’ favorite is right in California’s fertile backyard in Santa Maria Valley. This wine country destination on the Central Coast is fast becoming the biggest rival to the big boys of regional American barbecue.”

She also notes that wine has become an integral part of the Santa Maria BBQ destination experience: “Perhaps the best part of this food revelation is being able to enjoy this barbecue and still be able to do a little wine tasting in the same place. This glorious setting with its excellent terroir, cool climates and maritime influence produces exquisite Chardonnays, Syrahs and Pinot Noirs.”

Thanks to Wandermelon for showing that bigger isn’t always better when it comes to world-class barbecue!
