We are pleased to introduce "New" Stainless Steel Santa Maria-style barbecue grills, available in four sizes, our stainless steel variety offers the same robust construction and styling celebrated by backyard pit masters everywhere!
Santa Maria-style barbecue is a regional culinary tradition rooted in the Santa Maria Valley in Santa Barbara County on the Central Coast of California. This method of barbecuing dates back to the mid-19th century and is today regarded as a “mainstay of California’s culinary heritage.” Santa Maria-style barbecue centers around a beef tri-tip, seasoned with black pepper, salt, and garlic salt before grilling over coals of native coast live oak, often referred to as 'red oak' wood, preferred for authentic Santa Maria style BBQ, but any cooking woods or charcoals will work with excellent results.
All of our Santa Maria BBQ grills are heavy duty in construction. Using 304 gauge stainless steel & fire brick for the side walls, as well as (3/16") heavy gauge material for the grill base floor, our design offers a new standard for construction and heat dispensation that will provide a long-lasting product and hassle-free barbecuing. All Sunterra Outdoor Santa Maria grills feature ceramic fire bricks that create heat retention and distribution on the side walls, and fire brick floor.
The stainless steel grills are currently available in 36", 48" and 60" non cart versions for drop in configuration. A 36" & 48" style is offered in a single grate design. Additionally, we also make available a 48" and 60" dual grates and fly wheel assembly configuration.
The Santa Maria designs lift or lowers the grill grates over the coals to the desired distance from the heat producing phenomenal results.
Santa Maria grills with Fire Brick floor roll down to about 5" above firebrick (3" to 4" above coals)
Sunterra Outdoor and the BBQ Pit Boys Santa Maria Grill is for the BBQ Grill master that loves to cook and entertain on the Creme de la Creme in the Argentine style.
