How to Host Your First Authentic Brazilian Barbecue Party

If you’ve been to an authentic churrascaria, you know that nothing is more heavenly or delicious than the sight and scent of perfectly grilled meats. Packed full of flavor and fun, Brazilian barbecues are a great experience to share amongst all your friends and family. If you are looking to bring home or try out the Brazilian churrascaria experience home, there are a few rules you must follow.

Here is how to host your first Brazilian BBQ party at home:

Grill – While gas is okay to use, the rule for an authentic Brazilian BBQ is to use a charcoal grill. Charcoal burns hotter, helping to sear your meats and making it more flavorful and delicious.

Meat – Like all BBQ, the star of a Brazilian BBQ is the meat. While most churrascaria will have around 15 types of grilled meat to offer, limit your meat selection so that you can focus on cooking them correctly. We recommend you select top sirloin (picanha), Brazilian sausage and some marinated chicken legs for your party.

Seasoning – What’s the secret to achieving the perfect flavor of Brazilian grilled meats? While top sirloin (picanha) requires just a little bit of rock salt, our authentic Brazilian sausages are actually already perfectly seasoned and ready to cook as is.

Ready to recreate that delicious Brazilian steakhouse experience at home? Don’t forget the sausage! Sausages are a delicious food choice and option to incorporate at your next barbecue. When eating sausage, it is important that you choose a fresh and high-quality product and avoid overly processed ones. We recommend sausages that are locally made and fresh.
