Life at home is delightfully busy for Dr. Gentile and his wife, Kate, thanks to their baby, Ben, their dog, Odie, and their cat, Peepaw. Originally from Long Island, he says that he came to Texas for one main reason—the BBQ! He used to smoke briskets in his own tiny backyard in New York while he was a dental student. After visiting Austin and trying the best of the best BBQ there, he knew he wanted to make Texas his new home. He often hosts gatherings at his house and also likes to spend his free time playing the guitar, drums, and going to concerts.
