Where’s Steven and What’s He Grilling?

Where's Steven and What's He Grilling? It's the most famous roast pig in Indonesia--Balinese babi guling. And the best place to try it is at the legendary grill parlor, Ibu Oka, in the artist town of Ubud in central Bali. Here Steven takes his turn rotating the spit. The pigs are marinated in a fragrant paste of garlic, chilies, ginger, lemongrass, galangal, turmeric, and other spices and spit-roasted next to a wood fire. Each roast pig...

There are lots of interesting German grilled dishes: Schwenkbraten (pork neck marinated in beer and paprika), for example, and Steckerl fisch (herb-= filled trout grilled on a stick and served with soft-pretzels)....
