Santa Maria Grilled Tri-Tip Beef

In this video, you’ll see how to make grilled Santa Maria-style tri-tip beef. It’s a California classic—charred almost black on the outside, beautifully pink on the inside. It starts with a basic dry rub. You’ll also make a simple basting sauce with garlic, mustard, vegetable oil, and red wine vinegar. The key to grilling the tri tip is to get the signature very dark, caramelized crust. Chef John will show you the tricks to getting it done just right. It’s a great cut of beef for this type of high-heat barbequing. Very flavorful and extremely juicy. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Santa Maria Grilled Tri-Tip Beef. If you like, serve it with Santa Maria Beans, tortillas, and salsa.

I would like both Chef John Santa Maria Tri Tip Rub and his Santa Maria Pinto Bean Recipes. Where can I find them?
