Smokin Char Siu pork in the rain. What a beautiful day :)

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 :)
