Default Chinese BBQ Pork (Char Siu) & Wok Veggies w/Pron

Last night we had a nice meal consisting of Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork) and wok stir fried baby bok choy and snow peas.

On Friday night I picked up these primary ingredients:


I prepared a marinade consisting of: sugar, apple cider vinegar, black pepper, ginger powder, garlic powder, hoisin sauce, salt, soy sauce, green onion, and a little red food coloring. I sliced the boneless pork butt into strips, set them into the marinade and put it into the fridge overnight.

Yesterday I set up the XL Egg by filling a lump reducing ring with lump, placing a foil covered pizza stone on top of a triangle hanger, and setting drip pan and grill on top. Using cherry and peach wood for smoke, the pork went onto the Egg:


After smoking for 3 hours at 235-260 I pushed the temps up to about 300 and a few minutes later had these ready to pull from the Egg:


The grate, drip pan, and pizza stone were removed giving me access to the triangle hanger:


My brand new carbon steel wok went into the hanger and into it went some peanut oil, baby bok choy, and snow peas for a stir fry:



I then went to work on slicing the char siu:



It all went onto a platter and placed next to steamed rice and some mandarin oranges (believed to bring good luck):




The meal made for a nice little early Chinese New Year celebration for us!
