The month of May is known as the National Barbecue Month. This is the time we celebrate the food that tastes good not only for the body, but also for the soul! Churrasco always come with good company and is the perfect choice for any occasion. It can be served as a family lunch, watching sports or a big party.
In USA, this date began to be celebrated in the year of 1963. The initial idea was to encourage Americans to cook different food in open air, since this period was marked by high temperatures.
We can say that this worked out… Americans are big fans of Churrasco! According to Statista, in 2019 Churrasco grills market achieved $2.54 billion in USA!
Their love for this food is also demonstrated during Memphis in May, an event that hosts one of the biggest Churrasco competitions: The World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest!
The competition lasts 4 days in the city of Memphis, TN. Teams represent the best of world Churrasco and compete for the World Champion title of the tournament, beyond prize money that reach $145,000!
