Meat lovers in South America have eagerly consumed the flavor and tender texture of every type of meat, fish and fowl cooked over a Churrasco rotisserie for many years. J & R has perfected this rotisserie to prepare meats in the authentic over-the-charcoal manner and has used state of the art American technology in its construction. Alternatively, for your consideration, we have perfected ultra-high BTU, all gas-fired Churrascos which feature the fastest cooking times of any Churrascos in the world.
The enormous popularity of the Brazilian steakhouses is based on their ability to delivery all kinds of meat – sliced sirloin, filets, turkey, pork, sausages, lamb and any other combination of meat that a hungry diner can imagine – directly to the table. It keeps coming until the diner can eat no more!
The meats are usually rubbed only with coarse sea salt. Although a wonderfully mild garlic sauce, called Chimichurri, is sometimes brushed on. Some of the meats are dusted with a flour made from a tuber called manioc. Dining in a churrascaria, where meat cooked in the simple Brazilian fashion, is made special by the Churrasco rotisserie.
