Last year was a big one for California’s Barbecue Capital, and 2010 is set to sizzle as well.
In February, we launched this blog, the Official Santa Maria Style Barbecue Blog, brought to you by the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce. Sixty posts later, we’re turning the corner into the new year.
The year saw the introduction of the DineOut: Santa Maria Style dining promotion, which was a big success, and which will return in 2010.
The year also brought the first annual Wild West BBQ Bash, which was a smashing success. Look for it to return in July. The Santa Maria Valley Wine Country, meanwhile, launched its free monthly Santa Maria Valley Vineyard Walks. Look for the walks to return this spring.
