Chinese Barbecue Pork (Char Siu)

If you’re ever lucky enough to visit this part of the world take time to stroll around the markets and inhale some of the wonderful spice aromas. You’ll also find lots of small traders selling freshly grilled food on skewers that with only simple ingredients become so fantastically tasty.

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. 

The Chinese BBQ now called a KamadoThe origins of the Kamado are in China

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.
