Chinese barbecue has a long history and a variety of tricks

- Sep 04, 2020-

Chinese barbecue has a long history with a wide variety of flavors, including ten major flavors such as spicy, sauce, fresh, wine, and onion. One of the most famous is Xinjiang’s barbecue culture. As soon as summer comes, the hot scenes of barbecue stalls on the streets and alleys can see its popularity...

BBQ items must be available

Outdoor barbecues have to be prepared on their own. There are three most important points: food, stove, and charcoal fire. Barbecue shanks, meat, oil and other supplies must be purchased from trusted restaurants or supermarkets. Stoves and skewers can be rented from barbecue shops, and charcoal can be purchased from large supermarkets or farmers markets. Wet paper towels and a small fan must be brought along. Seasonings such as chili, cumin, and honey can be carried in appropriate amounts according to the taste. A large number of sturdy garbage bags should be prepared, and a sufficient amount of beverage mineral water should be prepared.

Grilling skills to keep in mind

Usually when I go to barbecue, the boss cooks it and delivers it to the table. It is not so easy to switch to doing it yourself. At least one person must know how to make a charcoal fire. To make a fire, you don’t just throw the matches in the stove. You have to fan them along the wind until the black charcoal turns into red charcoal. It is best to cut the purchased lamb into cubes in advance and put it in a fresh-keeping box, and then put it into skewers when it arrives at the barbecue site. This is not only conducive to meat preservation, but also saves space.

Some outdoor barbecuers just look at an open space on the side of the street. Regardless of whether there is a safety hazard in the surroundings, they set up a stove and start a business in a smoke-filled area. They also randomly set up the oven and seats to occupy the road. The phenomenon is very common. This not only affects the image of the city, but also severely hinders traffic, leaving many hidden dangers to safety accidents. What's more serious is that there is still the problem of unlicensed operation, and relevant departments should strengthen supervision over this. Some people also went to places such as forest areas and reservoir areas where barbecues were strictly prohibited by the state, and they also carried out barbecues in a "raging fire". These bad outdoor barbecue behaviors not only cause a lot of inconvenience to others, but also lay huge safety hazards to the occurrence of fires and traffic accidents, and some are even suspected of breaking the law.
