We are always thrilled to discover fresh praise for Santa Maria Style Barbecue, and the latest is found in a recent story by Bill Parson of Barbecue Tips & Techniques, who writes:

“Known as the ‘Barbecue Capital of the World,’ Santa Maria, California certainly lives up to the title. As you will see when visiting this area, or rather as you will smell, the wonderful aroma of BBQ wafting through this coastal valley, will lead you to any number of barbecues. Follow the smoke and you will soon be enjoying a superb meal of barbecued sirloin that will be a feast fit for kings.”

He adds:

“If you get the chance to visit the Santa Maria Valley, you cannot miss a chance of being treated to the deliciously simple taste of the Santa Maria BBQ, so come prepared. The number of people who come yearly to enjoy the taste of this time-honored traditional food numbers in the thousands. So, come hungry because you will be guaranteed not to leave that way.”

He says it so well that we’re speechless, so we’ll just leave it at that! Thanks, Bill, for shining the spotlight on Santa Maria Style Barbecue!
