Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Suzie Q's Santa Maria Style Seasoning, recipe follows
  • 1 (4 to 5-pound) beef rib roast, prime or choice grade
Santa Maria Style Seasoning:
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Parsley, minced
  • Sugar

Directions

Prepare fire pit by making sure the proper barbecue method is used to prepare the meat; using red oak logs burnt down to the coals with very little flame is strongly suggested for cooking the rib roast. Alternatively, preheat a grill.

Next, pour the seasoning into a shallow pan and dip or roll the meat in it, making sure to completely cover all sides. Quickly sear the meat to seal in the flavorful juices and then raise the pit screen to prevent burning while slowly cooking the meat to your desired doneness. When the meat is finished cooking, remove it from the pit and let it rest 10 to 20 minutes before slicing and serving.

Santa Maria Style Seasoning:

Combine all ingredients in proportions according to your taste. Use the seasoning to sprinkle on meat or roll large pieces of meat into seasoning in a shallow tray.
