American BBQ hits Philippine shores
I just got back from the Philippines where I was visiting my in-laws. We often give them updates on our BBQ exploits, causing them to often voice a desire to taste the results. Because I can’t bring meat to the Philippines I did the next best thing, I brought a WSM with me as a gift for them.

Charcoal was a real challenge since briquettes don’t exist. The only option is charcoal (called uling in the native tongue of my wife) made by hand and sold in small 1 kilo bags. However, a local “salesmanâ€

T,

Thanks for the help with photo additions to the posts. As you can see now I got them inside the post.

As for the quality time, anytime my friend, time spent with good friends is never wasted time.

Yes, we are more than tired of the delays we keep being given in the process to get them here with Nelly.

I would love to have brought back some secrets if they were to be found, but since the #1 cooking method in the Philippines is to fry the life out of everything, there wasn't much to bring back. On the other side of the coin, if hot oil was allowed in the contests I would be an ace now because they fry things we would not think of, like whole frogs stuffed with sausage and fried to a golden brown. Whole fish (truly whole head, tail, fins, innards) minus the scales dropped in hot oil and cooked until the whole fish is crunchy like potato chips. So no, there were no secrets discovered. I gave up far more cooking info than I gained.

As for the Lumpia, we ate them while waiting for the 8 hours to go by while the pork cooked.
