Notes from Jakarta:

#1. Fresh is better. Alive is the best. Asians know. Buy newly caught fish directly from a fisherman . Super markets are no no. Poultry shall be bought alive. Meat shall come from a wild animal. Learn to hunt or get to know a hunter.

#2. Let chefs do the cooking. Unless you're willing to slaughter chickens yourself, that is.

#3. Don't BBQ with charcoal. Indonesians use pieces of dried coconuts. Tastes much better. If you don't have ample supplies of coconuts, experiment with various kinds of wood.

#4. Do as the locals. Indonesians don't sit at the table. They sit ON it . Local traditions add flavor to the BBQ experience.
