How to make Bamboo BBQ sticks. Lifestyles.
Do you ever wonder where BBQ sticks come from, or how much time and work is involved? This is a most unusual Family cottage industry...But it feeds a Family of six.
They find a bamboo tree, cut a segment to size, then slice the piece of bamboo into BBQ stick size with a large Bolo knife.
It's a wonder they don't cut their fingers off!
After preparing several thousand sticks in bundles, they are taken to the market and sold.
With the money, the first thing they do is buy rice.
