is our pleasure to share with you the original western tradition
of authentic oak pit and smoked barbecue. Mavericks is not a typical
commercial catering company. We cater on site, outdoor, wood fired
barbecue all year long. Our traditional methods of preparation and
exclusive focus on barbecue reflects the strong commitment we have
made to serving only the finest barbecue, and we arent shy about
boasting of our great food and service.
In the early 1800s along the Central California Coast, the tri-tip
was made popular by local cattle ranchers. They learned to cook
over an oak fire and used seasonings that have been handed down
for generations. Over the years, this choice cut of beef has become
the cornerstone of the Santa Maria Style barbecue. The truly outstanding
flavor of this incredibly juicy and tender cut of beef can only
be reproduced by cooking in the same fashion as the ranchers did
150 years ago : over an open oak fire.
We proudly use authentic barbecue pits actually made in the Santa
Maria Valley. Our custom built mobile pits are used to prepare each
meal whether it be on site at your event or at our facility for
delivery . Each tri-tip is hand carved, seasoned, cooked to mouth
watering perfection over a hot oak fire and carved onto your plate.
Nothing can come even remotely close to matching the taste, tenderness
and juiciness. The best barbecue I have ever tasted ! is the EXPECTED
response from our customers. Even from old timers, the compliment
In addition to mouth watering tri-tip, our menu also includes slowly
smoked chicken, hickory smoked turkey and succulent St. Louis Style
pork ribs. These popular barbecue favorites are also prepared the
long way. In our smokers imported from Oklahoma, we slowly smoke
each and every time ensuring a deep smoky flavor reaches the bone
in every piece. Our turkeys take 14 hours to smoke and our ribs
are smoked, then finished off on the grill over an oak wood flame.
In fact, it will be Fallin off the bone.
