Argentinian’s love their barbecues and need little excuse to fire one up. A regular social gathering, an asado traditionally consists of plenty of meat (beef, pork, chicken, chorizo, black pudding and offal) cooked on a grill accompanied with a simple mixed salad. The barbecue usually starts with a grilled cheese flavoured with herbs and pepper and accompanied with chorizo, black pudding and offal. This would be followed by the cuts of meat that take longer to cook washed down with beer, wine or Fernet.
This Argentinian style BBQ Grill is made from steel with a black powder coated finish. This BBQ is generally fired with wood, although you can also use it with charcoal briquettes or lumpwood. The steel grill has v-shaped channels with a trough at the front. As the grill is slightly elevated at the back, fat drains away from the meat into the trough, making this a healthy method of cooking. It also prevents fat falling onto the hot coals and causing flare ups which might tarnish the flavour of the food.
The chain driven height adjustable grill can be altered quickly and easily to vary the cooking temperature as required.
Ash can be emptied with ease, thanks to the removable ash tray.
