It's a setup for failure: Drop in on Brasa, pick up a bevy of slow-roasted pork, beef or chicken and a flurry of side dishes (do not miss the roasted yams with andouille sausage, the collard greens with smoked chicken or the cabbage-apple coleslaw), and try not to snack on the drive home. A recipe for failure, indeed, but an excellent plan for lunch or dinner. (Next time, for safekeeping's sake, store it in the trunk.)
