Default Tonight's Char Siu on the kettle (pr0n)

I had defrosted a pork butt with the intention of cooking it on Sunday but got so wrapped up in cooking for the "Mini" throwdown I didn't get around to it. I really wasn't keen on refreezing it and don't have time during this week to pull off a late night cook session. Therefore, I decided to go with some Char Siu (chinese bbq pork) which is a much shorter cook.

Last night I cut out the bone from the butt and then cut the 6+ lbs of shoulder into about 2" wide strips:


then put the strips into a zip lock bag along with a couple jars of store bought char-siu sauce and a bottle of hoisin sauce:


Tonight I got the OTP kettle fired up around 300 degrees with a couple chunks of cherry wood, put on the pork, drizzled on a little honey and brown sugar:


I flipped the pieces about every 25 minutes each time adding honey & brown sugar to the side facing up. After about an hour at 300 I increased the temps to the 350-375 range and after 75 minutes of total cook time they were looking pretty good (IT was in the 175-185 range depending on the thickness of each piece):



I pulled them and let them rest for a few minutes and then sliced a couple of pieces:



I really ought to cook this more often.

Thanks for looking!

I haven't heard of this before...looks delicious...can you describe the taste, i.e., sweet, spicy, etc. Also, can the ingredients be found other than in a Chinese food store? Thanks

Default I sooo want to make these!

I read that you marinated them overnight. Have you ever tried for a shorter period? My thought was to marinate them starting around noon and then cook them up around 6pm. Too short a time? Thanks
