Singapore BBQ Glaze

The Singapore Marinade recipe that we use here at Hot Smoke BBQ is our own interpretation of the colours, aromas and flavours of the Chinese and Malay streets of Singapore. By adding honey to this tried and true exotic barbecue marinade you will obtain a lovely Oriental BBQ glaze sauce which will make a magical translucent and shining layer on your barbecue meat. And then, this Singapore barbecue sauce adds a wonderful taste as well!

Singapore Barbecue Glazing Preparation


Preparation of this Singapore Glazing is really easy:


-

Transfer 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) of the Singapore Marinade (that remained after you put the meat on the barbecue) to a saucepan and bring to the boil to sterilize;

-

Take the pan off the heat, and add 8 tablespoons of honey;

-

Stir the honey into the hot marinade until fully dissolved;


This Oriental honey glazing is ready for use immediately, if required.

Singapore Glazing Application


This barbecue glazing sauce is applied as follows:


-

Smoke or roast the meat - like leg of lamb, chicken or pork spare ribs - in your barbecue by means of indirect grilling in combination with hot smoking until it looks a nice brown colour and is just about done;

-

For the last half hour or hour of smoking you apply a layers of the glazing at ten to fifteen minutes intervals; Mop the glazing on the meat using a wide brush and make sure all corners and crevices are fully covered;

Note:
The layer of sticky glazing around the skin of the meat will form a seal. As a result, the evaporation of costly juices inside your barbecue meat will stop, or at least decrease, and in the end the meat will be juicier.

At the same time, because of the sealing action, the addition of smoke flavour will decrease or stop as well, so it makes no sense to keep adding smokewood once you have started glazing.

-

Close the barbecue in between mopping sessions to allow the sugar or honey to caramelize on the meat;


As soon as you are satisfied with the thickness and looks of the glazing layer, and provided the temperature inside your meat has meanwhile risen to the desired level, the party can start!
