KISS Principle
 
1 Attachment(s)
At time we go to great efforts to produce an average meal. An elderly Thai lady is making her living on the charcoal cooker shown below. She produces three products Chicken Maryland, skewers of chicken bums & skewers of giblets. All tasted fantastic and were very moist. A great example of Keeping It Simple Stupid (KISS Principle). BBQing at its simplest!!!

We call it the parsons nose. It is the tail piece - Little piece of bone, some skin, some fat and some flesh - tastes good.

I have never seen them served by themselves in Australia. But I am currently in Thailand on holidays and they use everything.

Hmmm, if I were in Patong I would be hussling around looking for gaeng tai plah, pad ped Sataw, khanom Jeen, Pak Tom Gati and especially tom Kem Gati plah Dook and kaeng Som!
I'd leave the grilled meats for when i got back.
Maybe hitting sabai sabai and the food courts at central 5.
Enjoy John!

I ate allot of that street BBQ all over Asia including Thailand. The sweet Chili sauce covered the taste of the rats,.. She kept them in a basket under her cart she would snatch one by the tail knock its head against the curb to dispatch it, then use the long claw like fingernails to pierce the hide behind the skull and strip it off the carcass, two min later it was cut, skewered and on the fire. Seeing what I had just consumed ( thinking it was Chicken) I lost my taste for Street BBQ. Pataya Beach Thailand July 1983

If this type of cooking interests you, check out THE BARBECUE! BIBLE BY STEVEN RAICHLEN. I have a PDF copy I downloaded for free a while ago. Might be worth a Google search, I think I had to download Realplayer to get it.

It was a rodent, rat like, but not a rat.
Delicious too.
The suckers in Bangkok are bigger than big domestic cats.:shock:

Any time I bbq a whole chicken, beer can or otherwise, I ALWAYS eat the tail piece. Didn't know it was called the "parson's nose" in some parts. I'll tell that to my wife the next time she looks at me weird as I eat the tail!

John, you make a great point.
Sometimes we get so wrapped around the axle we forget what we're doing.
Thanks!
