Using pork steaks already marinaded in a BBQ sauce means you literally only have to cut the pork into chunks and thread on the skewers along with the pepper. There is no need to do anything else and they taste so good. And, even better you can pick up all the ingredients up locally and they are very very reasonably priced.
