Hi, everyone,

Headed for Phoenix this weekend. Any fab places for grilling or smoking I shouldn't miss?

I can't recommend any BBQ spots, but Pizzeria Bianco serves some of the best wood-fired pizza anywhere. Bianco also has his own line of tomatoes and you can bring a can or two home for some grilled pizzas. They are something special...

Chino Bandido... also not smoking/grilling but a funky place, Chinese+Mexican cuisine. They were profiled on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and I go there every time I'm in Phoenix for work. A great lunch spot.

They have several locations.

It's kind of corny, but when I went to grad school out there, I used to LOVE the Pinnacle Peak steaks... Grilled outside over real Mesquite wood.... They had fakey gunfights, and a schtick where anyone who invited you tells you to wear a tie (which you discover they cut off an pin to the rafters.)

Since no man will order a 1lb. "Cowgirl" steak, you end up with the 32-oz. Porterhouse, but I would routinely finish them.

Thanks for suggestions. I wound up having great smoked food at the new Pig & Pickles. Also, terrific modern Mexican at The Mission (w flatiron steak hot off their mesquite and pecan burning grill). And of course Pizza Bianca for wood oven pie.
