Then I use Lee Kum Kee Char Sui sauce from a jar. The brand is very popular and their product is quite good. Search your local international/asian supermarkets.
Cover the meat with the glaze thoroughly and allow time to marinate, at least 6 hours, preferably overnight in the refrigerator.
Pop them in the oven at 425F on a raised grill over a pan. The pan can be covered with a layer of water to avoid smoke from drips.
Depending on thickness, 20-30min. per side.
Take the remaining glaze, add some good quality sesame seed oil (Japanese is my choice) and mix it and brush it onto the meat as you check them and finally turn them (once).
Final result looks like the photo posted. Good luck and good eating.
Thanks WNG! I'm certainly going to try and find that stuff. We're not that far from civilization!

The photo is from Shaw's in Williamston, NC; I won't say a word against B's; but the two best I've had are in Ayden: Bum's and Skylight Inn. 17 plates of barbecue in 48 hours? That's crazy, man.

I found that eastern NC style cue is very close to how my own barbecuing has evolved over many years of killing hogs and smoking meat. I thought this was cool as that's really the birthplace of American barbecue.

So much of the barbecue was served in a very similar way from place to place (within each style, of course), yet just about every place has it's own shape/style of fried corn/cornbread. I'm going to guess that what you have pictured is from B's. Am I right?



Amen to that. A proper Peking duck meal ranks very high in my book.

Today's lunch was not at all classic. I had a bulgogi burrito from a truck outside my building.

Not sure if you can get a hold of a copy of _Our State_ magazine there -- it's the kind of thing you find in the waiting room at your doctor's office, which is where I found it today -- but the current issue has a big special section on NC barbecue (doesn't seem to be available online without a subscription, but maybe you can find a way around it?): https://www.ourstate.com/tocs/september-2012/

Thanks brianinc-ville! I had a look at the site and there are actually 'online exclusive' recipes for some very tasty-looking NC dishes. Now I just need to get me some pawpaws ...

I went to college in Tidewater VA, not really known as a BBQ hot spot, but there was a great wood fired pitt bar-b-q place in Lightfoot (Pierce's) near my school. The sauce was more TN/Memphis style, I gather, but it was damn good stuff! Miss that with some cole slaw and Tabasco on top. Great hush puppies too.

I was cycling in France a few days ago, and couldn't resist ordering a tartare de boeuf for lunch. It was made before my eyes with raw steak, raw egg, mustard, ketchup, wostershire sauce, salt, pepper, capers, raw union and parsley (and some other stuff I've forgotten):



For dessert, a Colonel; lemon sorbet with vodka.



Needless to say, the kph's were down quite a bit after lunch.

An old favorite in Buffalo, especially in the Polish areas: Fried bologna & onion sandwich

^ That's funny, my East TN great-grandfather used to eat those all the time, and they are a family tradition. We do mayo, not mustard, and white bread, not wheat! So good. Probably the best sandwich of all time.

I have no idea how widely it was served, but I remember in college I used to go to a tavern for lunch that served them for $2.50 including chips and a drink (in the early '80s).

Now, that looks delicious! I got to find me some bologna and try it. They don't sell it here by that name as far as I know, but some sources suggest it is similar to mortadella. Or is that baloney?

Mortadella would probably class it up a bit, but would certainly be good. We usually caramelize the onions. Now I need to go to the supermarket and buy some bologna.

This was my favorite lunch spot when I was going to college in Long Beach.

Sandwiches were 35 cents. Pickled eggs on a bed of pretzel sticks were 15 cents. The beer was served in schooners. it was Eastside, but it was cheap. The back room pool tables were free. It was a great place to go when I was broke, and I always was. I'm glad to see they're still in business.

Grand Bois did you ever eat at Russell's Cafe in Long Beach? I lived in Ocean Beach in the early 70's and wore a regular path up I-5 to Marin County and back, always with a detour into Long Beach both ways for a cheeseburger and two or three pies to go.

Sorry to say I've been too busy this summer to do more than lurk this thread, but I've bee taking some photos and finally got them uploaded, so you're all gonna have to suffer now.

My daughter and son-in-law farm organically for farmer's market, restaurant sales, and a 125-member CSA--community supported agrictulture--share. They raise, beef, hogs, lambs, meat chickens and layers and most folks who browse the stalls at farmer's markets and their local coop have no idea of the endless labor from before dawn till the late night it takes to keep a small farm enterprise afloat. The next time you pick up that beautiful produce at market, be sure to thank your farmer for all the loving care and hard work they put on your table and in your belly. No matter where you live you know this has been a bad year of terrible drought and it's been the worst in over 40 years here in Nebraska. In spite of that, here's a photo of my weekly medium-size member share from mid-July:

Paella with two different sausages from home-grown locally-processed meat, a Moroccan lamb merguez and a Portuguese Chourizo. The assembled masses were chanting and beating their silverware on the table so the paella is still a bit soupy on top--not quite a cardinal sin but lacking that wondrous amalgam at the bottom of the pan that has been infused with the distilled essence into a not-quite charred skin.

Thanks You're still young Matt. I ate a lot of crap too as my love of cooking slowly grew--along with what we in my family of fressers (in German people essen and animals fressen) are wont to call er, Table Muscle. I learned the joy of feeding and serving folks from my old-country grandmother.

A detour to Long Beach would be about a thousand mile trip. You can't be talking about the city of Long Beach. I've never heard of Russell's. The only other Long Beach I've been to is Long Beach, WA. My daughter and I drove up there for the Washington State International Kite Festival.

I guess I was mistaken in thinking you were talking about Long Beach, CA. Russell's Famous Burgers was an institution on Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach, CA for years--there was also one in Seal Beach--but both locations have been closed down for quite some time. There is still a location in Pasadena. One of the best burgers ever and pie to die for. Back in the day Russell's was located on Atlantic Avenue, close to the old Atlantic Theater, but I believed they moved to a different location in Long Beach back in the 80's when the theater became a porn house and the rest of the neighborhood went to seed.

I lived in Long beach for a couple of years, then I lived on Seal Way in Seal Beach until 1974. That's beach front property, but my little apartment was a converted garage. I didn't care. I only slept there.

I don't remember Russell's unless it was the place with the Danish crackle buns.

I think that the confusion on my part is caused by the fact that you said that you said you travelled from Ocean Beach to Marin with a detour to Long Beach. The only Ocean Beach I know of is in San Francisco.

OB is a small beach town in San Diego, kind of stuck between Coronado Island and Pacific Beach. As for Danish crackle buns, my memory fails...
