Latest Wow BBQ Article - China - Around The World in 80 BBQs
Posted: Saturday 29th August 2015
 
 
   Around The World in 80 BBQs! Join us as we explore dishes from all around the world cooked on our weber BBQs

The second destination on our around the world BBQ tour is China!

We've adapted a very traditional chinese dish for cooking on your Weber BBQ.

This dish may be one of the most complex recipes that we will post but it's something very different and sure to impress your guests.

Comprising of sticky sweet pork which is braised and grilled and a soft pillowy tender steamed bao bun, we think this recipe is a real winner. 

Who'd have though it? Steamed Pork Boa Buns on the BBQ!
