"Forget the gas grill and ceramic briquettes," says author Robert Marin, who prefers the title "Grill Master" to Chef. "An 'asado' is not your typical backyard barbecue. When you go to your first one, expect to see something spit-roasting over an open fire." And expect to see them in this book, along with instructions on how to do it yourself. It does, of course, have tips and techniques for those who don't have the space, or the stomach, for such a commitment - tips on proper tools, lighting charcoal or wood proficiently, how to choose the best meats; and how to grill every cut and kind of beef, pork, lamb, goat, chicken, venison, boar, fish, and, yes, sausages and hamburgers. He doesn't forget about the marinades, side dishes, or desserts. There's also a small section on wine, beer and after-dinner spirits.
