    Hola Ya'll !

    Title is appropriate because I'm originally from Mississippi, lived in Texas for 22 years, and now live in Panama / Guatemala.

    Having lived in Texas I know what good BBQ should taste like, but have little experience actually cooking it. However, with the help of all the great info here and the Last Meal ribs recipe, I recently cooked the best damn pork ribs I've ever eaten! Thanks much for a great site.

            Yes, it is beautiful in both Guatemala & Panama. We are gradually migrating to Panama (have lived in Guatemala since 2006).

            Wil post pics of ribs next time. Since these were my first attempt at ribs, I did not have high expectations...when we realized how delicious they were they were nothing but bones in moments.

            Thanks for the warm welcome.

                  Not really. Typical Central American food is pretty basic. They do make chicharrones in Guatemala and other countries, but none as good as Meathead's recipe that I tried!

                  You can of course find good BBQ places around larger cities, but these are usually run by gringos.

                  In Guatemala, I live in a very rural village of a few hundred people. They were slaughtering a pig once for a fiesta and buddy of mine showed them how to do a proper pit and cook the whole pig. The locals were skeptical, but it turned out awesome!

                    No, winter is not my thing...we originally moved further south, to Belize, because it got too cold in Florida!

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.
