America for (Italian) Dummies #28

What’s more authentically American than a barbecue?

Yes, we have barbecue too, we call it grigliata (I wrote about them here: https://misshome.wordpress.com/2014/05/14/316-i-miss-grigliate-1/ and here: https://misshome.wordpress.com/2014/05/17/319-i-miss-grigliate-2/ ) but the American one has its charm

We normally have just an old grill or, for the wildest version, a stone (pietra ollare), but the Americans have super-cool BBq Grills

The menu is Italy is quite minimal: steaks, ribs, sausages, chicken, but in the US there are also burgers, hotdogs, beans, salads,

and tons of sauces, that in Italy are not very common

and then the mini fridge full of sodas and beers, the big pitchers full of iced tea and lemonade

We are better at pasta, but you guys are great with BBQ, and your Italian friends will acknowledge that.

Ah the taste of the American Dream!
