    Welcome to the Pit! My wife and I spent time in Italy on our Honeymoon and are planning another trip next year, assuming international travel will be somewhat normal. Haven't made it to NW yet but would love to get there at some point. We did Amalfi and Tuscany and are looking at Emilia-Romagna for next year. Perhaps a few more trips working our way north and west and we'll eventually find our way to your area.

      Thanks for the welcome, Jumbo! Italy is not as big as you think. Bologna, the capital if Emilia Romagna is only a four hour drive from us. Thanks for the welcome. BTW, is Willard's still churning out barbecue in Chantilly?

      cohenkin Willard's is still there, though I have only been there twice. I find myself buying bbq significantly less often ever since I joined the Pit and started smoking meat myself.

    Welcome and I am REALLY interested in your story. As it turns out, I am eligible to apply for Italian citizenship because my grandparents came from Italy. As I near retirement, my wife and I are talking about making a move like yours. We have travelled around northern Italy and loved it.

      Welcome, cohenkin You're a cousin of Lord Mayor Briscoe of Dublin, and I am one too! (Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem song: Mr. Moses Ri-Tooral-I-Ay https://music.apple.com/us/album/mr-...48?i=193095065 As a fellow retiree, I'm just a bit jealous. My wife (also of 41 years this 18 May) and I would love to spend significant time in Italy. Have friends in Firenze. But, the 5 little grandkids keep us in Seattle for now. And that 2019 award winning Rogue Creamery cheese was the Rogue River Blue. Ciao!

        As my sainted zayda said, "Only in America could that happen!" The good thing about grandkids is they become more portable as they get older. My nieces and nephews love coming here! BTW, May 18 is my sister's birthday.

        Fortunately I can never forget our anniversary, since we married the day Mt. St. Helen exploded. We were on the west side of Puget Sound in my wife's parents' back yard. Had crossed the Sound on a ferry, but were too pre-occupied by the pending affair to look up and see the 18,000 meter column of ash to the south. I figure that the gods had indigestion, what with a Yid and a Norwegian forming a union. Happy Bday to your sister. And, was your Zayda's quote a reference to Yogi Barra?

        And an early happy anniversary to your wife and you!

        "And, was your Zayda's quote a reference to Yogi Barra?" No, she was still pissed off at the Yankees for sweeping the Phillies in the 1950 World Series,

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker


        Green Mountain’s portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.

        Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

        Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

        The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
