Peruvian Steak with Fries. Long lines remained at different food stands that were offering either the exquisite chancho [pork] prepared in the cylinder or the crunchy lechon [pork] prepared in the Chinese box. The Peruvian Cylinder (Smoker) or the Pig Roasting Box? Which one is the best loved Peruvian BBQ technique?
After visiting one of the most famous Peruvian food fairs in the city and having acknowledged the big acceptance of these two cooking techniques, we were still wondering which of the two methods was the best-liked for Peruvians. This situation placed us in a very difficult position in which we should make a final decision.
Maybe if we knew more about these two options we would have a wider perspective of what to choose. So, we started to do our research on the similarities and differences between the Peruvian cylinder and the Chinese box.
This was done with the intention of giving you a better perspective and knowledge on which to choose depending on your likes and needs.
