The ultimate way to cook meat is over an open wood fire with grates that can adjustto the hight of the flames. The Santa Maria grill or Argentine grill is something I have wanted for years. It's 260 Lbs of steel surrounded on the inside with heat bricks to help retain the heat for a long time. It is permently installed on a flagstone stand and is the predominant cooker. You can use any wood but it prodominately is Coastal Red Oak. I add Mesquite, Cherry, Apple, Hickory or others depending on what I'm cooking.
