Tri-Tips Take 24 Hours at Wood Ranch at The Grove

November 19, 2014 10:02 am

The tri tips at Los Angeles's Wood Ranch take an entire day—and night—to prepare.

First, they slow-roast overnight. The following day, chefs grill them over a mesquite wood fire and add the sauce to-order. In fact, chefs prepare every barbecue dish that way, including premium American baby back pork ribs, certified Angus beef prime rib, and fresh chicken. Perhaps that's why this Los Angeles barbecue joint and its 13 sister locations won the Los Angeles Daily News's award for Best BBQ six years in a row.

It could also be the ambience, which reflects the American grub with roomy booths, tons of wood in warm earth tones, and a full bar. In addition to the tri-tips, regulars recommend trying the garlic rolls or mac and cheese. You can cap off your meal with a house-made dessert such as deep dish peach cobbler or warm chocolate cake.
