    Well, as a fan of the red food colored Chinese Char Siu pork I decided it was time to throw some smoke on the recipe. I used the following for my marinade. I added some pineapple juice to the marinade and used that as my mop.

    Char Siu marinade

    4 teaspoons soy sauce
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon powdered ginger
    2 tbsp Thai chili pepper
    1/2 cup hoisin sauce
    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup honey
    1 tablespoon rice wine

    (I left out the red food coloring the restaurants use)

    I marinaded the meat over night. It was on the smoker at 2pm


    I also had a pot of scalloped potatos, cheese and ham absorbing the smokey flavor too. After approx 5 hours of smoke I pulled and proceeded to rest it for approx 45 mins.

    Then, Whalaaaaa

    Next, Char Siu ribs :)
