I'm looking forward to this one. I love Mexican and Caribbean food, but I don't cook much of it. I'm looking forward to the inspiration.

Okay, here is the first contender. It was a great weather day here in Dallas, and I spent it cooking.

As I already mentioned, my family lived in Puerto Rico for a few years, so I did a few of my favorites from there.

Cuban Roast Pork on the Weber, a black bean side dish, from a recipe from Restaurant El Cid in San Juan, some fried plantains, and an authentic Puerto Rican Piña Colada.

The details are here: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=101447

I spent all day completely focused on this cook, mainly to blow off a lot of work related stress. Then, I rushed the photography -- my profession. Before I looked at the photos on the computer, I ate the food, so I couldn't take more shots.

I am not happy with the finished product photo, but I have to tell you, I stuffed myself on the food, and it was quite possibly the best meal I have eaten in the last year.

Puerto Rican/Cuban foods are so savory, and have so much flavor. There are some similarities to Mexican foods, well, authentic Mexican foods. And, having spent 7 weeks in Spain, there are definitely similarities with Spanish foods.

But, Puerto Rico is one of those wonderful places where multiple ethnicities combined to make some really interesting and tasty food. In Puerto Rico, you have a blend of Caribbean, Spanish, African and South American influences.

And, don't get me started on Puerto Rican street foods. They have these guys on the side of the road doing rotisserie chickens that are incredible.

I need to stop and wipe the drool off of my keyboard.

Enjoy the vibe,

YouTube - Buena Vista Social Club - Chan Chan

Country style ribs seasoned with Ancho and Aleppo chile powder:



These were broken up into chunks and served with seasoned black beans, saffron rice, chimichurri salsa and tortillas to make soft tacos.



Use this picture, please:



Nothing fancy, nothing rushed, just a fun blend of textures and tastes (Gore's been eating BBQ every day while he's been traveling these last weeks -- a girl's gotta do something special).



Thanks for looking!

I looked through my photos again, and I think I like this one better. Same basic shot, but different angle. Please use this one, bigabyte.

This was a tough one for me. I was on my feet and checking temps way more often than I like...However, the outcome was well worth it! I made Empanadas. They are filled with a homemade Picadillo. I cooked these cute little savory pies 100% from start to finish on the Egg. From the onions and peppers to the meat and sauce, then back on to bake them. The dough was lightly infused with smoke and the result as John put it: "A Mouthgasam". I have to say I agree.
(the last/single photo is my entry Chris)
