Sure, we went to Portugal, South Africa, and Germany, but he hadn’t been out of Florida. We drove from Florida up to Tennessee; to my where I am originally from in Michigan; through Canada; down t0 Vermont and Massachusetts; and back down to Florida.

The meat was ok, but the sauce was smoky and sweet.
