Terracotta Smiling Pig Sausage Roaster
- Hand Painted Terracotta
- Made in Portugal
This pig sausage roaster is meant to roast Portuguese sausage (chouriço). This dish is called of Chouriço a Bombeiro, which means fire fighter, because the sausage is grilled over an open flame. Chouriço a Bombeiro is typically eaten as an appetizer and will leave your guests with long lasting memories.
To make Chouriço a Bombeiro, simply pour alcohol (with a high proof) into the Sausage Roaster. The more alcohol in the roaster, the longer the flame will last. The sausage can be left whole or 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!
In order to use the 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.
