    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,

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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 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 Sam, I figured the cuisines would be a lot different. The Jota I made has Armenian roots. I've noticed the Trinity in one form or another is used in most cuisines and is usually fresh veggies that are sauteed. I found it interesting that in Friuli they preserve it like a dried sausage and I want to try to make it. I think between the video and adapted recipes from the region that I can get the proportions right although I'm sure every family's was different so it doesn't matter too much.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

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.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
