Go hog wild at these smoking grill joints, from Buenos Aires to Bali—they're the best barbecue restaurants in the world.

Fogo de Chão: São Paulo, Brazil

3 of 11

Most of the world grills on a gridiron, but Brazil's best barbecue comes off a whole wall of rotisserie spits—a meal at a churrascaria is an exercise in conspicuous consumption. At Fogo de Chão (campfire, literally), founded by two brothers from Brazil's cowboy country, you start with a buffet of salads, cheeses, and cured meats washed down with caipirinhas. Then it gets serious: signal one of the gaucho-costumed, spit-wielding churrasqueiros by turning the medallion at your place setting to green. In rapid succession, you'll be offered more than a dozen meats, including picanha, fat cap sirloin spit-roasted with a delectable curl of fat, seasoned solely with coarse salt, and carved onto your plate. Fogo de Chão has expanded to the U.S., but the experience has a different flavor in Brazil.
