At our home Italian food isn’t just spaghetti and meatballs and on our Pacific Living Pizza Oven isn’t just for pizza. It’s so versatile! Though we used lasagna noodles Patti combined lobster and shrimp in a cream sauce with fresh veggies from our Murrieta Farmer’s Market. This was an excellent date night dinner with just a kiss of oak smoke. This would also make a fine Sunday brunch.

About our Recipes
We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.
The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.
Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
