Our first attempt at making Chinese BBQ pork has been a long time in the making… It took us almost a year to source all the ingredients and many hours of research to come up with an approximate recipe. Not all Chinese restaurants offer BBQ pork and duck so you may have to shop around if you want to sample this amazing food!¬† This recipe is truly delicious but next time we will make the marinade sweeter, add more red bean curd, and intensify the smoking. Enjoy the photos!
