ASADO Argentinian style open pit barbecue. A very unique style of cooking meats. A very unique style of cooking meats. Seasoned or sometimes marinated lamb, pork, beef or chicken are attached to a vertical spit and slowly cooked over hardwood and charcoal on a open fire. The spit is hammered into the ground vertically and/or on a slight angle. The spit is also capable of rotating 360 degrees to ensure even cooking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cut spareribs into serving size portions, wrap in double thickness of foil, and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Unwrap, and drain drippings. (I usually freeze the drippings to use later in soups.) Place ribs in a large roasting pan.
