    hello guys! 

    I'm Lorenzo, 33yo from Italy! Even if I'm an informatic engineer, I'm obvioulsy a very passionate griller too and I'm starting a new small business with a friend of mine doing hamburgers and some smoked stuff in a couple of pubs around here. Seems like it's going quite well so I'm always searching for some good and "american" stuff to grill/smoke in order to bring the real bbq philosophy here in Italy... where none can actually cook properly a good piece of meat! 

    I've posted  a thread in the Fatty section, hope you could give me some good advice!

    Well you fooled me...I thought the pieces of meat I ate in my travels to Italy were delicious.

    Most of them; beef wasn't good.

    Welcome here paisano.

    Very few people know that meat is ready when it reaches a certain temp, they always look at the grill lines on the surface and it turns out either a blooding-inside piece of meat or extra-cooked...

    Perhaps you've been lucky in your travels, good for you! [​IMG]

    Got you. You were talking about grilled meat...I thought meats in general.

    I saw your fattie. Looks very good. Were you happy with the taste?

    When I did mine (only have one under the belt) I did not expect much from a loaf of stuffed ground meat. I did it mostly because I thought the bacon weave was cool. I was surprised with the flavours though.

    I think the weave alone will impress the judges at the competition. Good luck.

    Actually it's not a big competition, and it'll be my first one. I think everyone is going to cook some kind of steak or fish, since there will be only 2 hours cooking time (so no time for a well smoked brisket or pulled pork or wet ribs...), I wish I could impress the judges with the little smoke ring and the bacon wave, but most of all with the originality of the plate! 

    I think fatty rool isn't a "classic" plate in a bbq competition, maybe the surprise will bring me to the victory! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the whishes!
