What is Brazilian BBQ?

Brazilian BBQ is a unique eating experience. It’s your favourite thing you’ve never tried. The defining features of Brazilian BBQ are firstly ‘rodízio’ (which means ‘all you can eat’) so get your big hog mouths ready to go to town, and ‘churasco’ a slow-cooking, scrupulous method of preparing skewered meats over hot coals for a mouth watering-ly glorious period of time. Think big on meat, massive on flavour, and delicious on sides.
