1. Build the tire with wood. The BBQ grill must be next to the tire, not over it. The secret of a good asado, apart from the asador’s skills, lies in the choice ol the wood that will scent the meat.
2. When you have enough embers, place them under the grill and spread them evenly.
3. Check cooking temperature with the palm of your hand. It is OK when you can hold for 4 seconds.
4. Place the salted meat over the grill and cook it slowly. Be aware that the embers release a uniform heat.
5. Turn the cut over when meat juices are released.
Garnish with: crispy potatoes, rocket, onion, tomato and chimichurri sauce (prepared with brine-soaked chilli pepper, finely chopped parsley, oregano, thyme. rosemary, garlic, bay leaves, oil and vinegar).
