    你好 from Taiwan!

    Baba Kevin here, and I've been cookin the most legit American BBQ in Asia since 2009. We run a catering and hot delivery service in the greater Taipei area of Taiwan, and also distribute frozen foods to the whole island. Folks out here go crazy for our short ribs and pulled pork, and they're starting to appreciate real brisket and mustard based BBQ sauce. Importing wood here is tricky, but we got our supply of hickory, mesquite, cherry, and a few local fruit woods. If you're out here on business or just for the sites, look us up at https://www.88k.com.tw. Guaranteed, you won't be able to tell I'm not from Texas. Safe travels!

      Welcome to the Pit!!!! We are glad that you are here. Sounds like you are spreading the BBQ word around the island. We'd like to see some pics of that grub you guys make for people. Once again, welcome.

        I think something is lost in the Google translation. Smoking with Texas shrubs.
        Fresh full point after the selected US pork bellies ribs, tasty marinade, then simmered with hickory smoked, unique taste, family separation Ruannen, good taste will take you one mouthful
        And I love the smoke ring.

          Love that steak in your photo! Yeah, I'm putting in hard work to spread the knowledge and create an appreciation for the food I grew up on. Translating this is not easy, but you can select English in the top right corner of our site;-)

        你好爸爸KEVIN. Do you build all your barbecue grills? I'm still looking for a decent one to buy that won't fall apart or poison my guests. I've been wanting to go to Taiwan (I'm in Wenzhou) and if they've got a shop with decent grills, I'll have to buy one while I'm there. I'm really big on inspecting goods before buying. I was just in the States and paying the extra luggage charge to bring a 22" Weber here would have cost $200, more than the grill itself.

          The pits I built are far too big to fit on a plane. You'll have to boat them back to China, and it'll be way more than $200. We run three commercial smokers and a custom built brick pit. Hit me up when you're in town and let's see what'll work for you.

            Thanks for warm welcome everybody! Too many pics to upload here, but just a few recent shots. Very interesting place, Taiwan. Next hostess bar we cater, I'll snap some shots for the guys.

            So far, everyone here loves my BBQ. Look forward to more time on the forums now that the busy season has passed.

              Glad to have you hear. I love me some xiao long bao and Din Tai Feng is my favorite. There is a perfectly decent BBQ place in Beijing called Home Plate but I will definitely come check your Q. In a year and a half I never found decent Q in Hong Kong, KL, Jakarta, Singapore or Tokyo. SO the "best in Asia" may not be that high a bar---nonetheless I am happy for you and wish you the best!

                In case some didnt notice--- the number 8 is pronounce ba in Mandarin. So 88K = Ba Ba K right? And
                烤
                is pronounced kao (but third tone... falling then rising.. so ba ba kao

                    You got it Fracmeister. Baba sounds like Papa. When our oldest daughter was just learning to talk, she said, "Baba BBQ so good!" And the name just stuck.
                    Rest assured, my Q is legit. I'm a KCBS CBJ and got a few other KCBSrs out here who just wouldn't believe I'm from Cali. Father was a firefighter, I was a paramedic, learned to cook on the camp grounds and kept up the skills. Got a push from some great friends, both chefs, to go into catering and I took the leap. It was a tough start but we're going strong. Food biz is much more complicated that I ever expected, but it's getting better. Ban is soon to be lifted on Japanese beef, really looking forward to that here. Next step is importing our own meats. I strongly believe US exporters only send us the rejects, not the good stuff.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
