Santa Maria

From Burden's Landing

About 80 miles north of Santa Barbara on Highway 101.

Known for its special Santa Maria Barbecue.

Wesley Siebenthal wrote in on March 11, 2005 recommending Guadalupe as a place to go to find good bbq (and beans). Specifically, the Far Western Tavern. Take 101 to Main Street Exit, travel west approximately 7 miles. Head north on 1 until you hit 899.

You can purchase red oak at any supermarket, including Albertson's and Costco:
