  The other day, in the middle of a cold winter, I was wondering what would be comfort food from elsewhere in the world. Not your usual meat and potatoes from Europe, but something from, say, Asia. I specifically thought of something I usually like to make and treat myself that comes from Thailand.

Barbecoa was the term use for smoked meat by the Arawak natives in the Caribbean. They used the spices peppers, and other herbs to flavor their smoked meats.
