With the summer heat and humidity, we didn't want to use the oven. We found the cutest little cast iron barbecue at a construction store. It sits very low (2 ft.), as are most Brazilian churrascária's, or barbecues (note that the accent is on a different vowel than "churrascaría," which is the word for the Brazilian meal with lots of meat cooked over a barbecue). It comes apart and folds flat. We might even bring this one home with us-----except that it's HEAVY! We now have a new American Elder in our team (picture coming soon), so we treated our new team with barbecued American hamburgers. And we didn't melt from the heat!
