Korean-American BBQ

When I started Yooeating, one of my goals was to educate people on Korean food that specifically wasn't the Korean BBQ you can get at every restaurant on W 32nd Street. But growing up, my family would go to church or Korean school BBQs in the park, where all the parents would claim a few of the communal grills to cook up our version of summer BBQ – instead of hot dogs and hamburgers, we fired up bulgogi, pork belly, and LA kalbi. And when I arrived in NY, my Texan roommate introduced me to the glories of smoked brisket at places like Hill Country in the city and la Barbecue in Austin.
