The pork belly was treated with the marinade only:
Quote:
Grandpa Kwock's Char Siu
2 tbs Hoisin Sauce
2 tbs Dark Soy Sauce
1.5 tbs Rice Wine
2.5 tbs white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp catsup
1.5 tbs minced garlic
1/4 cup honey
So it was laying marinated in a vacuum sealed plastic bag overnight, got basted with thickened marinade during the cook, and the cubed pieces got sauced with thickened marinade as well. No rub or anything else.

The pot in the middle of the lower cooking grate contained our award winning 'Essense of Q' sauce, which otherwise had no role in this cook. I have no recipe for that sauce, my wife mixes it up as she goes along with it, this time it was a low-carb variation. The super secret ingredients are fat and juices dripping down from the pork on the upper cooking grate into the pot, and although the fat gathering at the top gets discarded as thoroughly as possible, it adds a fantastic layer to the flavor profile.
