Chorizo Pig Griller Dish

The chorizo pig terracotta grill dish is an exciting way to eat grilled chorizo at the dinner table. Traditionally served in warm terracotta dishes, trying grilling Chorizo using this signature pig grill that can be used either with charcoal or pure alcohol. Deeper than the Traditional Chorizo Grill Dish, the chorizo pig grill dish when used with charcoal can be kept warm for longer at the table. For a quick heat and cook display, go with the alcohol method instead.

How to use the Chorizo Pig Grill:

  1. First ignite sufficient charcoal or alcohol in the grill’s base. Alcohol used must be 100% proof to light successfully.
  2. Once lit, place scored chorizo on top of the griller and cooked as required turning occasionally.
  3. The chorizo pig grill is heat resistant and suitable for use at the dinner table. We recommend placing a wooden board or insulated mat underneath when
    using the chorizo grill around other diners.
  4. The chorizo grill cooks the skin around the chorizo giving off a beautiful BBQ aroma.

Serve with warm olives, crusty bread and other tapas of your choosing. So much fun, you’ll want to try it every night !!.

About the Artisans:

Cerâmica Edgar Picas (Chorizo grills) 

Everyone is familiar with Spain’s chorizo, but Portugal has its own slightly spicy sausage called chouriço, which some might consider to be just as good (or even better!) than its Iberian neighbour. This sausage, ranging from bright red to deep red in color is one of the most common and versatile sausages in Portugal: not only is it used as a sandwich filler, it’s also used to give dishes flavour. Chouriço is used in everything from soups and fried croquettes, to stews and meat loaves.  

And whilst Portuguese people have dozens of different ways of cooking chouriço, by far the most fun way is to use a chouriço grill, known as an assador in Portuguese. The assadores you see on Iberica’s website come from Cerâmica Edgar Picas, which was specifically chosen for its superior quality chouriço grills. This small, family-run pottery in northern Portugal takes pride in its handmade and hand-painted products. They believe – and Iberica shares this belief – that there is a wonderful charm in the uniqueness of each handmade item. No two assadores will be completely identical because of the human element. But how do you use an assador exactly, and why would you want to?  

By far one of the simplest and most effective ways to make a great impression at a party is to cook chouriço in an assador in front of your guests. It’s easy: first, take the chouriço, and remove the packaging. You can simply pour some isopropyl alcohol to the bottom of the assador. Ideally, however, you should add some whisky or other spirit with high alcohol content to the isopropyl alcohol to add a touch of flavor to the meat. Make small incisions and lay it flat on the assador. Light the liquid at the bottom with a match and remove your hand quickly because the flames that come up are big and beautiful! We recommend dimming the lights for the show – your guests will be mesmerized by the dancing flames and crackling of the meat. You can turn the chouriço over once or twice, until it’s cooked to your liking (some charring on the outside is recommended). Cut into pieces, serve as a starter with some sliced bread, and watch it disappear.  

A chouriço grill is, in essence, a miniature portable indoor barbecue especially designed for cooking sausages. The flavor you get from an assador is unlike anything you would achieve by cooking it on the hob or oven. Best of all, though it was designed for grilling chouriço, it is widely used for other types of Portuguese sausages such as linguiças, farinheiras and alheiras. A Cerâmica Edgar Picas chouriço grill is the kitchen accessory you never knew you needed.
