Charcoal or wood-grilled

Hi everyone, I haven't posted in a while but today I had the craving for something char-grilled (beef, pork, chicken). And not just grilled but it has to have been made over live coals or wood.
I used to go down the street to Yakitori Zai for this but it's closed now as you probably know. Hillstone, back when it was Houston's, used to do wood-fired steak that was awesome. Peruvian chicken places would also fit the bill as would a rib truck like M&M Ribs.
Would appreciate anyone who can help me make a list of places like this. Korean BBQ with gas grills and similar places do not count (e.g., Gyu Kaku).
So far based on the above, I have:
1. M&M Ribs
2. Pollo a la Brasa Beto's
3. Machu Picchu
4. Pollo a la Brasa El Chalan
Santarpio's Pizza in East Boston grills skewers of meat on a charcoal grill just inside the front door. Three meat choices: lamb, steak tips, and homemade sausage.
If you like Indian food, I find Indian cuisine offers some nice grilled items (I prefer the chicken) with or without a curry or sauce piled on top.
Been a while since I've had Indian in the Boston/Cambridge area, but I think Sher-a-Punjab in Quincy does a nice grill job on their meats.
Azita, Cambridge One Pizza, La Verdad, East Coast Grill, Tremont 647, JM Curley's. For burgers, I think that info could be found on Rich Chudy's BostonBurgerBlog .
