The Santa Maria style BBQ in the park is ready for use!
The grill works by raising or lowering the food above the coals to control the heat. It should work well even on windy days.
Santa Maria-style barbecue - Wikipedia provides basic history and suggested dishes. Santa Maria-Style BBQ Tri-Tip Recipe | Bobby Flay | Food Network provides a highly rated tri-tip recipe. Santa Maria BBQ - Sunset has a full article on this native California BBQ method.
What are you going to create on this new grill?
The grill would not have occurred except for the foresight and planning of a few community residents on the community garden committee.
