Santa Maria Grills
The Santa Maria grill originated in the Central Coast of California. It’s named after the town of Santa Maria. It is a unique style of barbecue grill that features a grate that can be raised or lowered over a wood or charcoal fire.
The Santa Maria grill is known for its versatility and is often used for cooking a variety of meats, including tri-tip, chicken, ribs, and sausages. The grill’s design allows for precise temperature control and cooking flexibility, making it a popular choice for outdoor cooking enthusiasts.
Santa Maria-style wood-fired grilling is all about tradition and flavor, and our grills are the perfect way to celebrate this beloved cuisine. We offer a wide variety of sizes and configurations to suit your needs, and we can even customize a grill size to your specifications. We build portable units for your patio, drop-in inserts for your island, and even offer all stainless models that we can stamp with the NSF seal for use in commercial kitchens.
Santa Maria Grill Inserts
Santa Maria Drop-In Grill Frame Inserts are designed to drop into an existing rectangular firebrick opening in your outdoor kitchen. They’re engineered for longevity.
Santa Maria Grill Cranks
The Santa Maria Grill Crank mechanism is located on the side of the grill and is used to adjust the height of the cooking surface, allowing for precise temperature control and cooking flexibility. By lowering the cooking surface closer to the fire, you can create a searing hot surface for cooking steaks and other meats. Raising the grate further away from the fire creates a more gentle heat for slow-cooking large cuts of meat.
Santa Maria Cooking Grates
The height-adjustable cooking grate system makes it easy to achieve perfect cooking temperatures throughout your cook and makes ash clean out a breeze. And because our grills are American-made, you can rest assured that our grills are held to the highest quality standards.
Choose from 3 cooking grate options.
- Expanded steel cooking grate seasons just like a cast iron skillet.
- Round Rod free float grates are warp resistant, easy to clean, put ultimate sear marks on your food, and rust-resistant.
- Argentine’s signature V grates capture the juices and prevent flare-ups on your grill. This design is great for fattier cuts of meats and means you can baste all day long!
