Santa Maria Sirloin steak was so easy and delicious marrying a 2” thick sirloin steak and our Santa Maria Seasoning. Too easy and so good. We have been working on a new seasoning “Santa Maria Seasoning” and giving it a workout on the GMG. We are Really Pleased with the results.

Thinking ribs and chicken up next.

Our Santa Maria Rub is being bottled now at our packer’s and will be out soon for sale! You can use our recipe and mix your own, but sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a little convenience.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

A Wood Pellet Grill Recipe

Cooking Directions: Santa Maria Sirloin

We put a heavy coat of our Santa Maria Rub on a nice 4-pound sirloin and let it rest for an hour to come to room temperature.

Preheat the Grill Grates to 450* (232c) and place your steak directly onto the grill. We did ours for 10 minutes per side with a quarter turn and the 5-minute point.

When the meat reaches an internal temperature around 125* (52c) pull it off (this will be rare), cover it and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. U.S.D.A. safe is 125* (52c). Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer (Our Store) for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke, so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
