Condominiums do not allow BBQ in individual units but they have BBQ pits for residents at common area, which must be booked in advance through condo management (depends on each condo).tjspence wrote:Hey everyone. I will be moving to Singapore in about 6 weeks and I am curious about the grilling scene. I'm American and therefore I like BBQ...in all it's forms. I've been n Asia for quite awhile and have had mixed experinces trying to put meat to fire. In Korea and Malaysia I've done some epic BBQs, enjoyed by all. However in Beijing I got my party raided by the police because of rules regarding location/fuel/grilling method.
I hear that not all grilling is allowed in Singapore, but many parks and condos boast BBq facilities.
So what's the state of affairs? What type of fuel/facilities/cuts of meat/rubs, suaces do the Singapore resident enjoy?
(Note: I don't wanna know about BBQ restaurants/satay/chaur stands. Pure DIY.)
No. Most of the parks (not Nature Reserves) have BBQ pits you can use eg West Coast Park, Pasir Ris etc.tjspence wrote:Hey thanks everybody.
The east beach is the only public park you can BBQ in ?
Note: thanks nutnut, I'll check that link.
If you don't enjoy cooking I can kinda understand that.tjspence wrote:Thanks for all the input!
If bottled BBQ sauce is available, I'll lean towards that. Maybe I'm lazy, but the cost/reward on homemade sauce has always been a miss for me.

Meat is no where near as good as the US in terms of cuts, prices and availability, don't be disappointed. Also, if you invite locals to bring food, they will probably bring some stuff that you've never seen before (otah wrapped in leaves, fish balls, satay and other weird non"slabs of beef" stuff)
For an idea of the kind of BBQ stuff and prices we have here look at the web, this place http://www.bbqwholesale.com/ This is the kind of local stuff that is available.
Enjoy! (BBQs suck nowadays, I miss the cheap steaks and sausages of real meat!)
