Follow us to Sizzle Central

Throughout the month of May, Santa Maria Valley does a tastebud takeover. This isn’t a smokeshow, folks. We put West Coast barbecue on the map 150 years ago. Now, we’re ‘steaking’ our claim. Tune in, follow along, and come see how we celebrate Barbecue Month, #SantaMariaStyle.

Recreate all the recipes you loved in Santa Maria Valley and find your new favorite side piece.
