When it comes to barbecue in this part of the world we all have to bow down and acknowledge the heritage of Chinese barbeque and it's impact on cooking styles and equipment that we use today.
For example there's Chinese barbecue pork (Char Siu) more commonly known as Char Siu and roughly translated as "fork burn". In essence, long strips of seasoned pork shoulder are skewered with forks and cooked over an open fire. The seasoning of five spice, hoi sin, dark soy sauce and red bean paste all contribute to give the meat a red outer ring similar to the smoke ring that we look for when cooking low and slow. Check this picture below and see what I mean.
The other point of significance that we have to thank the Chinese for is the ancient clay cooking pot from which (via the Japanese) the kamado ceramic barbecue has been derived.
