    Chilean backyard bbq!

    Sorry there aren’t going to be loads of pictures; there were lots of people from both families mingling, and I didn’t want to be taking photos of food and bbqing, I was having loads of fun meeting new people and trying new things and working on learning elementary Spanish!

    Leonel (Felipe’s dad) had Chilean lomo y Argentine lomo so we could taste the difference. Argentine lomo is outstanding. Chilean lomo is still pretty good, but man, Argentine has that special beefiness. It’s all flavor!

    The sausages were insane. No mustard, nothing on them, just sausages in rolls. They were offered offhandedly, like, “Oh, here, have a sausage.” Okay, can I have three please?

    There is a strong German influence on Chile, and the beer is really good, like US craft and microbrew good. This is a lager that could have come from anywhere in the Fatherland. Reinheitsgebot stuff.

    Quail eggs. Carmen’s (Felipe’s mom) brother has a farm and he raises quail. So... quail eggs. They taste like free range chicken eggs. The sauce is ketchup and mayo.

    Other stuff that that didn’t make the pictures: Carmen grows aji peppers, the Peruvian ones. Damn, I said to myself several times to get a snap, but I didn’t. We blew through about a dozen bottles of Chilean wine. They drink a lot of wine in Chile. There’s a grape that was lost to the world about 150 years ago, Carménère, that was rediscovered in Chile in the ‘90s; it’s a Cabernet variety. After dinner Leonel broke out the Bulliet and we shared baby pictures of the kids and did our best to embarrass them. I think this family is going to work just fine!

        Wow and really cool. I love pickled quail eggs. Never had them "regular" . I could throw down about 6-7 per bite.

        Congrats to you and your new family members!

          I love Chilean wine! Very dry, earthy, and non-jammy like so many US varietals seem to lean toward. Thanks for taking us along!

              Sound like you are having a delightful time as we all wedding festivities should be. It makes me want to try new foods and styles of cooking. You are as much of a MCS fighter as I am, but is there a new cooker in the works and maybe some bringing home some aji pepper seeds?

                Mrs Mosca saw it and said, "You can't have one." Too bad, it's pretty cool.

                I've tried to grow peppers, haven't been able to. Not enough sun, and when I plant them where there is such the deer eat them.

                      Further observation: the beef was all grass fed, the fat was yellow like scrambled eggs. But the Argentine beef was still outstanding.

                      It is possible that grass fed, and grain fed, and grass fed and grain finished, can all be either good or mediocre. There are many more variables than just the feed, I think.

                        Always a rivalry between, Brazil,Uruguay, Argentina and Chile who has the best asados. Like I have been saying most parrillas (grills) are pretty simple and rudimentary down here, but that is pretty much all you need. Make the most of it, it will go fast.
                        If anyone needs Spanish classes I used to own an online Spanish school and can put you in direct contact with personal tutors by Skype.

                          Leonel is pretty convinced that Argentine is the best! Mosquette actually teaches English here in Chile. I think the greatest impediment to learning it, for me, is that I don't need it. Even if I learned it, I wouldn't use it and it would fall away.

                          We bought and grilled some beef and sausages in Aruba a few years back, and it was excellent. I don't remember if it was from Argentina or Venezuela though.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Placeholder

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
