I'm going to do a Santa Maria-style BBQ soon and I'm a little confused. I know that traditional SM-style BBQ is served with pinquinto beans and salsa but, and this may be a really stupid question, how is this served? Are the pinquinto beans cooked separately with the usual suspects, and then the salsa (I'm thinking more like a pico de gallo) served separately and then you eat the salsa on the meat? Or is the salsa spooned over the beans?
How is this usually served in SM? The only time I've had actual SM BBQ in SM it was served on a french roll as a sandwich with no sides.
Thanks for your guidance.
