Smokin' Neighbors

Two new neighbors moved in this summer. The guy across the road is from Peurto Rica & next door is from Panama. The frequent smoke comin' from my garage/cookshack/hideout brought these fellas over for introductions. Seems both of 'em love to smoke/grill their ethnic foods. I think I've hit paydirt! We've initially talked up some food/recipe swapping in the near future. What they don't realize yet....is I cook year round....hot, cold, wet. dry.....Hell I'm like the freakin' mailman If something good comes out of these proposed collaborations....I'll be havin' some interesting posts

probably gonna have to learn Spanish

BQ, that could be very interesting.

I'm another one of those that Q all seasons. You might be interested in the Frozen Few virtual bbq contest Super Bowl weekend.

Pay dirt indeed! Don't know much about Panamanian cooking but Cuban is one of my favorites. Share some recipes when the time comes.

But seriously, cross-cultural cuisine can be really good because it benefits from the traditions of both. I bet you get some interesting recipes, tips, etc...[/quote]

And hope he shares some of those recipes

Someone in my neighborhood has a smoker, just can't tell where it's coming from. Sure would like to find out and turn em onto this site. I guess I better start peekin over the back fences.

I live next to an Italian who keeps leaving a dead fish wrapped in newspaper on my door step. I don't think he's looking for a recipe.

I wouldn't worry until they put a horse's head in your bed.

First of all, all those Italian remarks, I resemble those and I'm highly offended! Second of all, they were pretty funny! BQ, that could be a fun time with those neighbors, keep us posted. So Larry, what your saying is your neighbors hate you? Would da thunk?

Not yet dollarbill I think I'm more into the idea than they are The guy from PR did show up this weekend with something for me to try. Wished I had taken pics. He said it was a staple he grew up eating. His grandmother used to make it. Sounds & looks labor intensive. He did not make it (had a Dominican chef in a nearby TN town prepare it) He claims it is very expensive here because of ingredients. I'll go into how strange it looked if anyone is interested in another post. He brought me 4 & a cold Heineken. He stood there waiting to see if I would try it. Well the long & short of it is I ate all 4 servings he brought & drank the beer. The taste was AMAZING Basically made with pork, unknown spices & "minerals" (his words) plantins wrapped in banana leaves & the whole thing encased in a teabag like paper & tied up with string! He called it Pastele de Gwneo y Cerdo Has anyone out there heard of or tried this? It was very tasty!
