and howl at the storms overhead. Nowadays when we get together, we still talk about those “thunder parties.” Back yards are sacred ground. This is a lesson many of us pry from childhood memories and hold dear as we grow older, even as we seek bigger and more exciting experiences in adulthood. Perhaps only after marching out to move our mountains can we return to truly see the value of the humblest places in our lives—the ones that have no soaring vistas or thrilling sights but that do know the thrum of our children’s footsteps in summer,

GOOD TIMES

River Cleanup Week During the week of May 18-22, Roaring Fork Conservancy hosted its 22nd annual Fryingpan & Beyond River Cleanup. In compliance with Covid-19 safety guidelines, this year's event was expanded to include waterways across the valley. Scores of socially-distanced volunteers ventured out to collect trash, snapping photos of their finds along the way.

OPEN HOUSE WHERE STAYING IN MEANS BIG ADVENTURE

SPLENDOR IN THE M O U N TA I N S ARTICLE FINN COLLIER PHOTOGRAPHY ESTATEPHOTOVIDEO.COM - CODY ISAMAN

ESCAPE. It’s what summer is all about. Escaping daily life, escaping the grind, even just escaping the heat. Often we venture far and away to find summertime bliss; but sometimes, escaping the world means staying home. This exceptional ranch property just outside Carbondale offers more than 220 acres of opportunity for living every day like a vacation day. Three stunning parcels of land converge in Full Throttle Ranch, which lives up to its name in every way with infinite possibilities for recreation, entertainment, hospitality, and arresting mountain beauty. Ideally suited for a private family compound, corporate retreat, or guest ranch, Full Throttle “is seemingly endless,” says listing agent Patty Brendlinger. “It’s so quiet, there is so much to do and explore, and yet it’s also just a few minutes from Highway 82.” Dwellings on the ranch include the 5,991 sq. ft main residence with its rustic elegance and upscale Colorado charm, the remodeled 2,202 sq. ft. original ranch homestead which now serves as a guesthouse, and a 2,504 sq. ft. caretaker’s apartment above the property’s heated horse barn. Outdoors, one can enjoy the pleasures of a charming beach-style pond, landscaped grounds, a vegetable garden, inviting porches, a grand exterior fireplace, high quality equestrian facilities, and other features. Further out, the ranch includes 75 acres of fenced, irrigated land and 62 acres of grazing land, plus plentiful options for horseback riding, hiking, hunting, ATVing, fishing, and snowmobiling. Cattle Creek traverses the length of the ranch, offering numerous additional opportunities for exploration and enjoyment. For more information about this exquisite property, contact Coldwell Banker Mason Morse brokers Patty Brendlinger at 970.379.5484 or Jim Cardamone at 970.948.2832, or visit CBMasonMorse.com. 10

“BARBECUE”

IS

DERIVED

FROM

THE

CARIBBEAN WORD BARABICU, MEANING “SACRED FIRE PIT.” While many festive foods such as roast turkey, prime rib and baked ham are served on specific holidays, barbecue can be served any time that it’s nice enough to cook outside. Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day are all known as great BBQ days with friends and family. Barbecuing is certainly considered one of the great American pastimes. The science of great barbecuing is actually quite simple: Start with a great cut of beef, pork, or poultry, coat with a dry rub, and then cook very slowly with live fire and smoke at a low temperature ranging from 190-275°F,. This slow cooking method breaks down the molecular structure of the meats while rendering the fats, browning the outer crust, and creating a succulent, moist, and flavorful protein that’s finished with a great homemade BBQ sauce. Whether you’re from the Carolinas, Texas, Kentucky, Kansas, Missouri, Alabama, Hawaii, New York, Tennessee, or the Florida Keys, each region has its own pit master pride in creating a unique style of barbecuing, sauces, and smoking. Particularly in the southern regions of the U.S., pit masters take barbecuing to the next level in barbecue competitions. Chefs compete for the bragging rights to be named the best by a panel of expert chef judges.

Barbecue

s e as o n

GOURMET BACKYARD BBQ: IT’S EASIER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK

20

Roaring Fork Lifestyle | July 2020


How long do I barbecue/smoke? This depends on the mass of the protein you’re cooking and the temperature you’re cooking at. For barbecued ribs I like to rub with my dry rub, smoke for two hours at 225°F, then wrap in foil and return to the smoker for the times listed here. Then when you have one hour remaining, unwrap and coat with sauce and return to the smoker for the last hour until nicely caramelized. For pork butts, briskets, and shoulders, smoke for six hours and then wrap in foil for the remaining cooking time. Chickens are best marinated or brined and then coated with my dry rub directly in the smoker for their duration and sauced one hour prior to being done. And what wood is best for smoking? My favorite is hickory, although I more often use apple wood because it’s more easily obtainable near my home in Carbondale. There are also many apple and peach farms in Paonia and Hotchkiss which sell their dead trees for smoking. Hickory chips and mesquite charcoal are readily available at most stores, and many other options can be found online. COOKING TIMES

+ Baby back ribs (12-14 ounces per rack): Six hours at 225°F

+ Medium baby back ribs (16-20 ounces per): Seven hours at 225°F

+ Large ribs: St. Louis ribs, spare ribs, and beef ribs (21-32 ounces per): Eight hours at 225°F

+ Pork Butts and Shoulders (7-8 pounds) 10 hours at 225°F

+ Brisket (10-12 pounds): 10 hours or 200°F internal temperature

+ Smoked whole chickens (3 pounds cut in half): 2 ½ hours at 225°F

+ Raw sausages: Italian, bratwurst, and chorizo: 1 ½ hours at 225°F

+ Cooked Sausages: Polish, andouille, kielbasa, and weijska: 45 minutes at 225°F

SUZANNE KIRCH An established freelance writer, Suzanne has been a regular contributor to RFL magazine since 2017, and enjoys sharing her love of storytelling by teaching language arts at St. Stephen Catholic School. To read more of her work, please visit: GrowLearnCreate.com. + BOOK: “Right now, I am reading C.S. Lewis‘ autobiography: ‘Surprised by Joy.’ It’s been a wonderful read (and has made me up my vocabulary game). I’m also going to reread some of my favorite books by another Irish author, Maeve Binchy. She wrote in such a warm, humorous way about people that are recognizable to all of us. One of my favorite books by her is ‘The Lilac Bus,’ which is a compilation of short stories, and a good way to get into her writing.”

RENEE RAMGE Renee Ramge is a photographer who is grateful for every day. After a battle with cancer she’s dedicated herself to “living life NOW!” When looking through the lens she hopes her mantra is expressed in the images she captures. ReneeRamge.com + BOOK: “We’re all works in progress. ‘Untamed’ by Glennon Doyle challenges us to rethink the roles we’re subscribed to in life. It’s a fun read with your friends this summer to spark conversation.”


AMY HADDEN MARSH For Amy Hadden Marsh, journalism is a calling. She is a full-time reporter for KDNK Community Radio. Her work has won Edward R. Murrow awards and recognition from the Colorado Broadcasters Association and the Colorado Press Association. The Roaring Fork Valley has been her home for four decades. + BOOK: “John M. Barry’s ‘The Great Influenza’ for some insight into the current pandemic and how scientists, physicians, and communities survived the last one. Silvia Federici’s ‘Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body, and Primitive Accumulation,’ a fascinating read about the transition to capitalism in medieval Europe.”

D O U G L A S S T R AW Doug settled in the Roaring Fork Valley near the end of the 20th century after growing up in Pittsburgh, PA, and living in the deep south and on both coasts. He owns and operates MountainCom LLC, a strategic communication agency specializing in results-driven marketing, advertising, design, public relations, and social media management. DWStraw.com or follow MountainCom LLC on Facebook and Instagram. + BOOK: “This summer I’m re-reading ‘The Divine Conspiracy’ by Dallas Willard, and just started Donald Fagan’s memoir, ‘Eminent Hipsters.’ The first is philosophical, theological and transcendent, whereas the second is thoroughly rooted in the earthly, musical here and now, so it’s a good balance.”

GENEVIÈVE JOËLLE VILLAMIZAR Geneviève Joëlle Villamizar is a “community builder” through storytelling and the atypical medium of Nature. Crafting a life with her 9-year old daughter, Juniper, and an untold number of chickens, Geneviève has learned that life tastes better with two parts meaning-making, one part sheer, unexpected accident, and a splash of levity. Houzz.com/Projects/Users/Salt_Dirt + BOOK: “The book that changed my life forever and still consumes me is ‘The Road Home’ by the now six-feet-under Jim Harrison. It’s an elegant feast of the mind and senses. ‘The Painter’ by Peter Heller has everything I’m drawn to: a gifted man of questionable character, art, poetry, beauty. Anything by Isabelle Allende—her feminine take on magical realism brings childhood with my Colombian father to life in sweet, fantastical ways. And ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ by Delia Owens. Her sensitivity to the details of nature paired with powerful storytelling enchanted and captivated me.“ CityLifestyle.com/RoaringFork
