Santa Maria Style Barbecue has been on a magnificent streak of media coverage, and the latest comes from L.A. Weekly’s fine how-to feature this week on our regional culinary tradition.

Spotlighting local purveyors such as the Hitching Post, Far Western Tavern and Susie Q’s Brand, writer Kathy McDonald begins: “Memphis, North Carolina, Kansas City, Texas and Santa Maria–all are barbecue styles; only one is native to California. Traced to early ranchers and vaqueros (Mexican cowboys) of the 1800s Central Coast, Santa Maria barbecue is traditionally grilled meat cooked over native red oak.”

Santa Maria Style Barbecue is the barbecue world’s best-kept secret, but the secret is increasingly out as foodies and food writers alike champion its charms!
