Mr. Paul Righetti teaches us a Santa Maria BBQ tritip lesson. The beauty of Santa Maria Style barbecue is that it delivers big flavors while being relatively easy to prepare. You can even take some flavorful shortcuts with Santa Maria Style Barbecue products by Susie Q,s Brand and Cowboy Flavor, among others. So fire up the grill and let'Â€Â™s get started!
1. Create your Santa Maria Style Barbecue rub by mixing one tablespoon of salt with Â½ teaspoon of black pepper and Â½ teaspoon of garlic salt
2. Sprinkle rub evenly across meat. For larger cuts, roll meat in rub, covering the entire surface.
3. Fill your grill with red oak or other high-quality fuel, avoiding cheap paraffin charcoal. Wait until the coals are red hot with very little flame; spread them out evenly.
4. Quickly sear meat to seal in flavorful juices, starting with the fat side, then raise barbecue pit screen to prevent burning. When juice appears at the top of the meat, it is time to turn it over. Cook until desired doneness. Medium rare is recommended, Â€Â"which typically takes 20 minutes per inch of cut thickness.
5. Do not trim fat before putting the meat on the grill!, You may trim the fat after cooking. For tri-tip, slice against the grain the long way, not across the triangle. It wonÃ¢Â€Â™t be a uniform cut, but it will be more tender.
6. Finish with Santa Maria-grown strawberry dessert.
