El Carnivoro BBQ – Welcome
Argentina. When thinking of this country, some iconic images come to mind; Diego Maradona, Evita Peron, the vast pampas (grasslands), the tango, their love for futbol (soccer) and its gauchos (cowboys). And then there’s the meat. Lots and lots of meat.
The Argentine BBQ has its history dating back to when the first European settlers arrived to its rich and fertile grasslands, bringing with them their own cattle to a land that had never experienced domesticated cows, sheep or goats.
And who better to tame the thousands of growing number of cattle? Our very own cowboys (gauchos). Over time the gauchos perfected the art of quickly building a fire, grilling and eating the choicest cuts of meat and in turn, gave us the Argentine BBQ (El asado Argentino). Soon a national tradition was born.
