Spotlight on Fiery Flames
Grilled galbi and bulgogi in Korea. Wood-smoked barbecue in the U.S. Slow and low parrilla-grilled steak in Argentina. Tandoor-flamed naan, vegetables and chicken in India. Coal-fired lamb, corn and farmer’s sausage at a braai in South Africa. Spin the globe and you’ll find that nearly every country puts its own succulent twist on cooking with smoke and fire. In addition to the sensory delight and primal satisfaction that comes with seeing and smelling flame-cooked food, charring, smoking, searing and grilling inject serious flavor into meat, vegetables, fruits and anything else that can stand the heat. The right rubs, marinades and sauces transform these fired-up dishes into craveable classics.
