They don't have tri-tip, but Jocko's in Nipomo is fantastic. Everything cooked over blazing red oak on a Santa Maria pit. I've had pork ribs, beef ribs, and beef BBQ there (it was like a sliced beef deal, with some kind of sauce - not normally what I'd go for, but very good). Everything I've had is fantastic. It's a very popular spot, best to have reservations & go early. If you like to drink at the bar with locals, you can do that - it's a fun spot.

From what I understand, the real roots of what is widely understood to be Santa Maria BBQ are in fundraisers held by churches and civic organizations. I have no idea if they still go on or not. There's also a spot called The Hitching Post that I haven't been to but have heard good things about - I believe there are 2 - not sure if they are related or if one is preferable to the other.

This looks promising...I may have to go check it out myself!
