What's That Yer Smokin', Dude?!

What's That Yer Smokin', Dude?!

 

Actually, it's Wild Alaskan Salmon, but I bet you were thinking something else when you saw that title, knowing I'm in California!

 

Given our weather year-round, we tend to grill out 5-6 times a week pretty much year round. I am the Grill Guy. I suppose it's rather a traditional role but I like it, and have for years. Back in New England I tended to avoid grilling out in the worst weather, but still braved the cold now and then. I used to be a dire-hard charcoal griller, but migrated to gas grilling soon after moving to SoCal.

While our grilling, and smokin', is pretty simple, you see some pretty impressive outdoor kitchens out here - refrigerators, TVs, grills, pizza ovens, smokers, sinks, granite bars, elaborate stoves and grills, outdoor woks, and more grace some of the fancier outdoor entertaining spaces. This one with a pool is at a local model home!

 

Outdoor kitchen and pool

 

I took my life in my hands tonight, setting up the smoker. We have 2 hummingbird feeders close by and the hummers were not at all pleased I was hanging  around, and interfering with their dining. My head got buzzed more than once!!

 

Anyhow, I love the outdoor lifestyle here in Carlsbad, and if I can help you find the house of your dreams, perhaps including a fancy outdoor kitchen,  or perhaps a home with a pool as well, why not give me call at (760) 840-1360. Despite our inventory there is a pretty good selection of homes across a wide range of prices.
