    Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Being new here I thought I'd add a quick round up of my favorite B.A. restaurants.

    In a town loaded with grilled meat and asado, a stateside BBQ fan may not know where to start. Its pretty hard to go wrong, but you will want to try a couple of places for sure. I should add that if you go to dinner at 8pm and no one is there, it isn't because it's late. It's because it's early. Things swing from 9/10pm to midnight. Expect to eat late.

    For something Fancy (most of the meast are roasted in a wood fired oven) try "Happening" in Puerto Madero. Its trendy and hip, with an awsome wine list and some of the best cordero (lamb) I've ever tasted.

    Figueroa Alcorta, Av. 6464, Belgrano, Bajo Belgrano, C.A.B.A.

    For the straight up real grill and Asado experience everyone goes to "La Estancia" - of course a classic - but please don't overlook "La Tranquera" for a fantastic selection of griled Achurras (sweetbreads, kidneys, blood sausage and Intestines) and drop your socks Asado.

    Francis Mallmann is the Argentine version of Steven Raichlen. He's conquerd TV, Books (You must read Seven Fires) and Restaurants. He is a maestro when it comes to live fire cooking. His zona Boca restaurant Patagonia Sur should be on your list. Try the peached pork, its divine.

    My experiences only, but you're sure to find something you like in one of these. By the way if you ever get a jones for a Pizza when you are there, look no further than "El Cuartito". Best pizza in the world. Hands Down.

    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
