An Argentinean is unlikely to let a visitor get near the barbecue: it is part of the sacred culinary art, the family Sunday asado or the asado for friends is the host’s responsibility to prepare it and share it, as well. We remind you that Argentineans are the biggest consumers of meat in the world, with 65,4kg per inhabitant per year (42 in the United States).
First the material, starting with a good barbecue. Even in the city, it is not uncommon that a balcony or a terrace is equipped with a fixed barbecue sheltered from the open air. The bars are wide and strong to hold all the pieces of asado and are cleaned with a piece of fat.
