Breaking in my new BBQ Pit!!!! Oh Yeah!!!

My new BBQ pit is finished. That's right. My Son-In-Law, Barry, jack of all trades and a master of quite of few of them, just finished up the very first Santa Maria style bbq pit here on Guam. (first that I know about anyway)

Naturally, I just had to break it in. So I decided to try a number of different types of meat to see how the pit would handle it. Needless to day, the performance was great. The wood burned just right. Everything worked out just fine and I am one happy camper!!

Here are some pics of the pit and what I grilled.....







My wife Lupe was just waiting in the wings.

After she tried a sampler of pork spare ribs. This says it all.

I didn't take any pics of the chow after it was all cooked. Didn't have time. We had to eat!!!!

Looks like I am going to be one busy griller in the weeks to come.

Until next time....

Cowgirl,
I love it!! Finally, after 26 years on Guam, I have my Santa Maria Grill. You can tell I was excited. All that food was for the two of us. Oh well, we don't have to cook for a week. Not!!!!

I been following your blog. You have been busy. I will be giving you a holler.

Thanks for the visit.

Have a couple more in progress. The grill looks GREAT, but I tell you, mom makes the food look DELICIOSO!!! I knew if anyone would appreciate the first grill, it would be you!

Xreme D,
Oh, do I ever appreciate it! I just BBQ'd some chicken wings just because I wanted to finish off the leftover wood in the pit from the other night.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
This party is just beginning.
