Having our wedding at a ranch in Malibu in late August and really struggling to find someone/some place to bring the oak wood & tri-tip for on-site cooking. Really just want basic, well-cooked, authentic Santa Maria (tri-tip, chicken, beans, etc.). I know Santa Maria BBQ Co. in Culver City caters, but haven't been blown away by the quality of their meats.
Has anyone tried Auntie Em's BBQ? Is there a place in Santa Maria itself that will make the trip south?
Any suggestions would be great.
