    My First Santa Maria Cook!

    I was visiting my out of state in-laws and my brother in law was showing me his "fire pit" that came with his house when he bought it. I recognized it right away as a santa maria grill with rotisserie. I quickly volunteered to make dinner for their family; as I have been keen on trying a santa maria. We cleaned out all the ash and debris from many camp fires. I fixed up the lifting wires and was ready to cook. I picked up some B&B Hickory whole splits from Ace. I tried to find some nice tri-tips to satisfy the stereotype, but could not find any (East Coast after all). I settled for prime new york's from Costco. They came out amazing! Everyone was pleased. I don't have the greatest photos as I was focused on cooking. I am a fan of the Santa Maria and plan on getting an attachment for my weber kettle.

          So sorry you had to "settle" for new york strips. Looks fantastic. There is nothing like live fire cooking.

              I've seen the LSG Santa Maria and it looks very nice. I don't think I'll get a dedicated SM but just an attachment to my 26 kettle.
