How to construct Big Moe’s Reconstructed (BBQ) Sushi..
First, put a sheet of nori on your bamboo mat, shiny side down. Cover about two-thirds of the nori with rice place your toppings across the rice.
Fold the bamboo mat over, rolling the nori onto the toppings. Be careful not to roll the mat into your sushi. When the mat touches the far edge of the rice, begin tightening the roll.
Now you have a complete roll. Slice the roll in half with a very sharp knife, pressing straight down through the roll to avoid tearing the nori. Slice each half twice more to end up with eight pieces.
