    OK had to try this in the smoker, have done it in the oven before.
    It's Chinese BBQ, I'm sure you all have seen these in Chinese resturants and Market places.
    I used part of a pork shoulder and marinated for 2 days. Basically Soy Sauce, MSG, Sake, Sugar, Chinese 5 spice, Hoisin and Star Anise. Oh forgot Red Dye #2, actually red food coloring.

    Had it in my MES for 6 hours at 230.

    Can be eaten as is or in fried rice or lo mein ( fried noodles).

    Its not your moniter it really is red![​IMG]

    It really came out great!

    If I could get hoisin to stay on my jerky and dry up OK I'll be a hero...nice pork. Lose the color. Irrelevant... or find a way to add flavor AND color! Paprika?

    Richtree, I have tried paprika but not really a Chinese taste, the color is only for looks as far as I can tell. I think in the past they used some kind of formaldehyde for the preservation & color, ain't trying that![​IMG]

    Also, I think (not sure) but red is a festive or a color the Chinese use for special occasions. Just trying to keep up the tradition.
