    Greetings from Italy...

    Hello all,
    I'm a new member but have been lurking.
    I live in Anzio, 60 km south of Rome, Nerone born place, on the sea and I love to BBQ.
    I’m an "young" 63 yo men and I am here to learn as much it will be possible with your help.
    AmazingRibs and you all are my reference!
    BBQ and beer..what else?

    Hello Marco! Welcome! I have had the great pleasure of spending two weks in Italia and love the place. American may be the kings of the grill, but nobody takes a back seat to Italians when it comes to good eating. I officially name you our Ambassador. Teach them how to grill and smoke!


      welcome and thanks for the support


        Welcome, Marco. My wife is from Milan, and I've also spent some time in your beautiful country. Sometimes I dream of bringing barbecue there, but it looks like you're well on your way. What do you like to cook?

            Fine looking ribs there sir! And the others too of course, but I get a big smile when I see good looking ribs.

          Nicely done, sir. Are the pictures in the middle porchetta?

              Beautiful. I did one once, with Meathead's help. You've got me thinking it's time for another. I wrapped a belly around a loin. Looks like you've got several pieces of belly here and maybe a tenderloin? What was your process?

                Welcome therokes! We're glad you're here. Those are some impressive cooks. I was in Italy last October (Rome and Florence). We had a blast!


                  Welcome. Beautiful looking food.




                      Welcome aboard therokes


                        Is there a Porchetta recipe floating around here somewhere? also, i thought you we're supposed to cut the belly in a crosshatch pattern...

                          I know Meathead has dabbled in the porchetta world but I do not believe he has a recipe posted for one quite yet. he discusses it some in his 'Goin' Whole Hog' article: http://amazingribs.com/recipes/porkn...ent-1404697509. Mostly in the tan sidebar, maybe halfway down, and the comment section at the bottom of the page.

Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                      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.
