(I'm that bad type, make your mama sad type) #8045

Hey, dumb question? What makes it Santa Maria?

(Full Metal Keto) #8046

@x-Dena-x Santa Maria is a town about 150 miles south of me near San Luis Obispo. It’s where the Tri tip craze started. There’s a rub called Santa Maria rub, there are variations, some with ancho chili powder which may be more authentic but basically,

Santa Maria style dry rub seasoning.

Course: Condiments

Cuisine: American, Spanish

Servings: servings

Calories: 10 kcal


  • 1 T. salt
  • 1 T. black pepper
  • 1 T. paprika
  • 1 T. fresh rosemary minced
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper(optional)

I would sub ancho powder for paprika and cayenne if you have it. :cowboy_hat_face:

OMG THANK YOU for posting this picture, I went directly to bzoodles.com and pre-ordered my very own copy of the recipe! I watched the testimonials, salivated as I watched them eat bzoodles in a variety of delicious looking ways… I cannot wait to make these!

Hooking up with this forum has been most beneficial for me and my plan to get healthy, drop unwanted pounds, live my best life.

I thank you all…

Breakfast …Somehow salt & vinegar rinds sounded good. Craving salt. Walmart carries Mac’s Salt & vinegar


Years ago I thought I was driving toward the Mojave Desert when leaving Bakersfield and ended up on the scariest mountain pass ever and eventually reached Santa Maria…that area was probably my favorite spot in the US, rolling green hills with dairy cows on one side of the road and awesome oceanscape on the other. I did not want to leave EVER :smirk:

I might have to Check this out! Salt and vinegar sounds awesome!

(traci simpson) #8056

I tried them and I love them!


Brace yourself if you try those lol, they are VERY zippy! To me, they tasted more like lemon and pepper which I didn’t entirely dislike, but it had a weird artificial taste to my tastebuds so 2 mo later still have half the bag left…

Consider myself prepared then lol! Thanks for the heads up. Since my pork clouds I found yesterday I have been on a pork rind mood!


I tried the pork crackl’ns by Macs recently, I was not prepared for what those actually were like texture wise lol, they have like a soft underside…I incorrectly imagined that they were just extra crunchy pork rinds :confused: I think I am a plain is better with pork rinds kind of gal…of course I do dip them in all sorts of things :wink:

(Ashley) #8060

I more of along the lines of, I don’t like them plain! I think plain ones have a very strong distinct flavor I just don’t like. But with herbs and spices and such I’m starting to really love having something to crunch on!
