- 1. What is Churrasco BBQ
Churrasco BBQ is a prominent feature in Hispanic cuisine. It has its origins in South America where the indigenous communities used stone fire and greenwood grills to roast their meat. In these countries, Churrasco can be made with sausage, chicken and pork. There are special sauces (e.g. Chimichurri) that are used along with the embers to make the meat succulent, soft and juicy.
- 2. How to make the best Churrasco BBQ
The best way to get your Churrasco BBQ meat tasting delicious is to prepare the meat in advance. If you have the time it’s a good idea to marinade and rest the meat the night before you want to make it. You can use the traditional chimichurri as a base for your marinade. Ask your butcher for fatty cuts of meat as these will have the best flavour. Ribs are a good option.
In American BBQ the grills must have super high temperatures, but this is not so with this delicacy. You want to cook your meat low and slow for best results. When you are ready to grill, use slow embers to slow roast one side of your meat and then the other side. In about 15 minutes your delicious meal should be ready
- 3. Where to get the best grills for Churrasco BBQ
For best results you need to have the right grill. The body of the grill must be made of stainless steel. A lot of cheaper grills will have a stainless-steel coating and will start to rust after being used a few times. It is important to get your grill from a reputable grill retailer so that you’re assured of quality. Cast aluminium is also a great option.
Choose a grill that has even heat distribution and that can retain heat for a long time. With such a grill you can host BBQ parties every weekend and as long as you take good care of it, it will always produce delicious meat.
