Ciao from Italy

Postby asador911 » Mon Apr 09, 2018 4:24 am

Dear all,
first of all excuse me if my english isn't that good, I'll try to do my best ;)

My name is Andy, and I'm a grilling enthhusiast from northern Italy.
American barbecue style isn't that common in our cuisine and, while grilling is part of our tradition, it's often limited to easy dishes like sausage, burgers and chicken. Boring!

My real passion for grilling started in Argentina, where I've been a dozen times because of my job.
Of course argenitian "asado" is very different from the italian way, and it took time and effort for me to learn the technique.
My favourite cuts are the entrana (skirt steak I think), the tira (a strip of ribs) and the famous ojo de bife (a sort of thick rib eye).
The results and the flavor (comparing to the typical "italian grigliata") are good but... at the moment no big pieces, no low & slow,...

that's why I'm here :D

Arrivederci!

Thank you Rambo!

Welcome to the forum, Andy! :D

My step-father is from Northern Italy (Florence, if I recall correctly). Because of that, I was lucky enough to discover Pesto long before it became trendy on American food television channels. The GIF picture in my signature is primarily a joke, as I like pesto on everything from grilled chicken to asparagus. Love Italian cold cuts also, like soppressata (my favorite), prosciutto and pancetta.

Definitely looking forward to your take on BBQ, and seeing what develops from combining Northern Italian and US grilling. :)
