Inihaw na Porkchop (charcoal grilled porkchop)

Inihaw……..Who can say no to a charcoal grilled pork chop, beef ribs, chicken or even fish. Here in New Zealand, I seldom cook a dish using charcoal. Do you know why? Because I find it expensive. To give you an idea, 1 kilo of pork chop is around 7 to 10 dollars depending if it is on special or discounted price, a kilo of fish is around 3-10 dollars depending on its kind. Do you know that a bag of charcoal approx 1-2 kilos could cost you around 10 dollars? (were speaking of New Zealand dollars). But of course, nothing beats the taste when you cook your barbecue using charcoal. How about in your place? is charcoal cheap or expensive?…………………………..Did you know that by using the method of grilling, barbecue or roasting the pork take off its excessive fat?
