Bakkwa,肉干, commonly known as BBQ meat, is a food tradition from Southern China. Thin slices of meat are marinated with sugar, honey and spices, air-dried and smoked. The smoked meat is left to cool and wrapped in layers of waxed paper.

In the past, Bakkwa was considered a luxury good and most families bought it during festive seasons like the Chinese New Year.
