    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.

    HAPPENING (Almagro)

    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.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

    Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
    Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
