I have been traveling around countries where Chinese people have lived for centuries / decades for more than 12 years looking for food ideas and recipes such as the famous Chinese barbecued pork.

I am passionate about Chinese food and Chinese recipes and this one is without a doubt one of my all time favorites!

I've been looking for the best Chinese bbq pork recipe for a while and I have never found what I was looking for... Until I traveled to Wulai Village in Taiwan, where I walked by a giant BBQ roasted pig that was on a table in front of a convenience store.

I ate a few bites... and I knew I had found the perfect Chinese BBQ pork recipe!

I asked the girl who was cooking the pig what her secret recipe / technique was and she told me:

  • Burn the hair with a torch.

  • Place the pig on a giant grill and cook for about 6 hours. Turn the pig every 30 minutes.

  • When no more oil drip from the hog, it's a sign that the meat is well cooked.

  • The traditional Chinese way to bbq pork is to only add salt on the pig's skin as it cooks on the grill.

  • Nowadays, Chinese people use all kinds of variations to this Chinese bbq pork recipe such as stuffing the pig with spices or marinate it with strong rice wine.
