The history of arrosticini bbq
If there is one dish that is closely associated with Abruzzo, it is arrosticini bbq that is made from skewers of lamb meat roasted over a hot bed of charcoal. This type of barbeque is part of the food taken by shepherds while they lead their flock from the high pastures to the low lands that are closer to the sea. The shepherds have to bring their own food because there are no food sources along the way except from fruits. Small pieces of lamb meat that are sliced thinly are placed on wooden skewers to allow the shepherds to quickly cook their food over an open flame. It is common to find arrosticini in many of the mountainous villages and towns of Abruzzo because it is not only a delicious meal; it is easy and highly convenient to cook. However, the fame of arrosticini bbq has spread and countries have created different variations of the popular recipe.
Barbeques all over the world
Meat barbeques have become a common delicacy in several parts of the world. Apart from lamb’s meat, people use chicken, beef or pork that is marinated in various ingredients. In Hongkong, the char siu is marinated with honey and soy sauce and cooked in long thin strips over hot charcoal. This barbeque recipe is a popular street food consumed by most local residents. Barbequing is also a popular activity in Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Singapore and the rest of Asia as well as in Europe and North America. However, the traditional methods of barbequing have now been commercialized with the introduction of modern grills that can accommodate from 20 to as much as 100 skewers. These modern barbeque grills have made cooking easier and more flexible because it allows for different kinds of meat to be cooked at the same time.
Durability which is a major concern in the choice of kitchen equipment is addressed by modern arrosticini barbeque grills that are made from stainless steel. The dividers and skewers are also made from the same material to ensure that meat will not be contaminated with rust. The grills are carefully designed with V notches where the skewers can be placed evenly so that meat will gain equal benefits from hot charcoal. Its extraordinary performance makes it a perfect component of a food business.
