Thai Barbecue Chicken, 'Gai Yang'
Gai yang translates to "barbecued (or grilled) chicken", and can be prepared in many different ways, we demonstrate here three unique versions.
There are pictures below shared by visitors to this website, links to street vendor videos, and detailed instructions on how to prepare three of our own versions. Perhaps the most famous gai yang is sold by vendors in the seaside community of Bang Saen, where the bird is cut open along the belly, flattened with a few blows from the back of a cleaver, and pegged with a stick to hold it, then marinaded and grilled over charcoal.

The granite darkens into a nice, beautiful charcoal grey (at left is a new set which darkens over time due to oils in your food).

Using and Caring For Your Thai Mortar
These mortars are heavy, well balanced and suitable for rigorous pounding & grinding. If you ever see the way TV chef Jamie Oliver uses his, you'll know that this mortar and pestle and take a beating without fear of breakage. The nice weight and taper of the pestle assists you. When using the mortar and pestle, it's a good idea to place a folded dish towel down on the counter first, as the heavy mortar can damage your countertop. When finished, simply place mortar and pestle in the sink and rinse it with soap & warm water.
As Thai culture has lots of old "legends" and superstitions handed down through generations, there is an old wives tale about the stone mortar and pestle that we'd like to share. Although you can really pound the pestle as hard as you can, it should always be done with food in the mortar. If a woman pounds the pestle into an empty mortar, Thai superstition has it that her breasts will stretch to the ground.
We are having this manufactured for us in Thailand using the finest stone and workmanship. This is a tremendous value.
