It's Barbecue Week on Eater Boston, and although we've been focused on American barbecue — smoked meats galore — the word comes up in other contexts as well. Brazilian barbecue generally refers to a wide range of meats grilled on skewers; often, it's served in the rodízio style, where servers continuously come to the table with skewers of meat that is sliced right onto diners' plates.
The Boston area features a few solid options in the rodízio realm, and there are also some Brazilian barbecue buffets for those who prefer to have all the options laid out in front of them. Whichever you choose, go hungry: Brazilian barbecue is guaranteed to satisfy even the largest appetites.
From picanha (the beef rump cap) to costela de porco (pork ribs), feijoada (beef, pork, and bean stew) to farofa (toasted cassava flour), fill your Brazilian barbecue cravings at these spots.
