That part about why Santa Maria was invented is flat out not true. The true and original Santa Maria BBQ did not even use sirloin as a part of the cook. As for SM flavoring, it is a fairly straight forward salt, pepper & chile powder rub if you go true traditional on it.
As to flavor or not, I am not going to argue with you, it is your judgement and right to believe as you taste. I don't like Filet Mignon at all, won't eat it at half the price. And I get tired of people telling me it is the best tasting cut of beef, just ain't so for me. You don't like tri-tip, fair enough.
