WORLD’S COOLEST GRILL

Gas or charcoal goes the old debate. For my money, nothing beats wood. And one of the world’s coolest wood-burning grills is made by my friend Klaus Marx in Saarbruken, Germany. (You can read more about Klaus on page 221 in Planet Barbecue.)

The grill is called a Schwenkbraten (a “swinging grill”), and its genius lies in its swinging, spinning grill grate which evens out the hot and cool spots when cooking with a fuel as mercurial as wood.

On the grill–Saarbruken’s grilled pork steak, also known as Schwenkbraten. For the recipe, see page 219 of Planet Barbecue. (Think pork, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, and allspice.) It’s that good.
