Instructions For UseThe Portuguese Traditional Terracotta Clay Sausage Roaster is meant to roast Portuguese sausage (chouriço). The Portuguese call the process of grilling sausage over an open flame Chouriço a Bombeiro. Chouriço a Bombeiro is typically eaten as an appetizer and will leave your guests with long lasting memories.
In order to use the Portuguese Traditional Terracotta Clay Sausage Roaster it must first be fully submerged in water for a full 24 hours in order to cure the dish. This procedure only needs to be done once before its first use, but may need to be repeated if the roaster is not used for an extended period of time.
To make Chouriço a Bombeiro, simply pour alcohol (80 proof or higher) into the Sausage Roaster. The more alcohol in the roaster, the longer the flame will last. Traditionally, the sausage is left whole but with slices about one inch apart along the top. Ignite the alcohol using a match or lighter. Rotate the sausage every minute until desired crispiness is achieved. Then, serve!
I luv it. Beautiful and well crafted.
I have purchased four pig roasters, and they are great. The shipment arrived on time, packed extremely well. We sue all four at the same time when we have outdoor outings. Make sure you soak them at least for 24 hours the first time and use alcohol about 80 percent for fuel. They clean up easily, I would recommend this product. A great conversation piece.
