Choriço à bombeiro(BON-bai-ru) or as Americans would say flame grilled chorizo, is a traditional Portuguese way of grilling chorizo.You'll  place that fat piece of meat  in this bowl, like the picture above. It’s made out of a clay called terracotta you might of heard about it.  It's decorated with animals more specifically pigs because chorizo is pork.The word bombeiro means fireman because it basically goes on fire. When you put it in the small pot you have to pour água ardente on the piece of sausage (água ardente is like an old fashioned traditional type of brandy very high in alcohol). Next you throw a inside  that bowl and in a flash it's in flames.It's usually made when your neighbor comes over to have an afternoon chat and you randomly feel hungry or for a midnight fast snack.Every time we go to Óbidos(oh-BE-dosh) a medieval village surrounded by a castle in Portugal me and my family have choriço à bombeiro it became a tradition.We go there for the chocolate festival,the christmas land,tours to the castle and a bunch of other stuff. Well anyway go to Newark and try it!
