Title: Santa Maria rub
Post by: squirtthecat on September 02, 2011, 05:32:26 am
Ok all you West Coasters...    What is in your favorite Santa Maria rub?

I'm doing my first ever (at my house) tri-tip tomorrow night, and that's the rub I think I want to use..

TIA,
STC.

Or you can try to replicate it. It is made up of coarse cut pepper,garlic,onion,red pepper and sea salt :)

The "classic" seasoning for Santa Maria tri tip is salt, pepper, and garlic.  That's it.  Salt, pepper, and garlic.  Red oak for the wood. I'd probably go with that for my first one so you can see what the meat tastes like "straight up" and adjust the spices to your liking later.

Well, that's easy enough.   That's kinda what I had in mind when I first bought these..    Equal parts ya think?
Fresh out of red oak, but I've got bags mini logs with some oak content in them.

Thanks!

Works for me!

For some reason I thought that rub had some kind of green stuff in it......   Must be a Cali thing.   ;D

Found a recipe at Food.com that has paprika and rosemary in it. Rosemary might be your green stuff.

I use 1 part fine sea salt (same grind as table salt) 1 part butchers grind black pepper, 1 part granulated garlic and 1 part granulated onion on my briskets.

Just sayin.  ;D

Santa Nebraska rub...   I like it.

I thought about breaking out that jar of Wooster powder I split with you ages ago, but I don't want to cover up the flavor of the $$ meat.    I'll get it out next time I do smoked Italian beef.

Tri-Tip does not need much, other than what Ka Honu has stated. Wifey suggested Montreal Seasonings on one and Cattleman's Prime Rib Seasoning on another, and they both sucked.
Back to basics.

On its way STC.  You should see it Thursday. 
I only had 5 Oak pucks left and I included them.
I am missing some home made beef jerky from my desk at work and with the box swapping I did at the post office, my afternoon snack may have ended up in the package.  If so, hope you enjoy.   ;D
There is some of my pepper blend seasoning that has a mixture of Habanero, Super Cayanne and jalapeno.  Test for heat before using.   8)  CRG may remember the hotter version of this from our trip to Houston.
I also threw in some all purpose seasoning that I made.  It is my favorite on steaks.  A little different ratio mix in this batch from previous ones I did.
Next time I'll have to get the box and take it home instead of trying to stuff and mail it on the fly at the post office.  The box I was going to use needed tape which I didn't plan for so used one that was self sealing and therefore had lots of room that I could have stuffed more goodies.
