    A friend at work asked if I could smoke some Hawaiian style smoked meat, we just call it smoke meat here. I told him that he had to butcher and marinate it and that I would smoke it.

    This dish is basically teriyaki pork with some spice.

    I decide to go with the 22.5 WSM with KBB and kiawe for the flavor wood.

    Starting the chimney:


    I figure since this is going to be a smoke that's only gonna go a little over three hours and I didn't want to fill up the charcoal basket and have a TON of charcoal leftover I put my mini charcoal basket inside the WSM basket and fill the two outside edges wit unlit coals and poured half a chimney into the middle.


    I had to make a run downtown while this was going and returning home this guy was hanging out on my cattle gate.



    So after a couple of hours I move the meat that was on the outside of the grill into the center and the stuff from the center to the outside. Note: the dude totally cut this wrong!!! (I'll edit in a pic of a previous smoke I did with it cut correctly).


    After three hours of smoke it's time to Carmelize them up for the final coupe deville... Err, coup de grace. Took the middle section out and put the grill right on the charcoal basket.


    The temps stayed right at 225 for the entire smoke and I still had over half the charcoal left after three hours.


    Cooling and gonna get bagged. I have gave my youngest a couple of pieces for dinner and she said it was the "best ever..."

    Cute chameleon. I guess his colour palette does not include metallic grey or rusty brown :)

    What cut of pork was this? Looks delicious.

    The pork looks great...I'll bet it was delicious!  Very nicely done!  That reptile looks like a miniature version of a monster out of an alien horror movie!  [​IMG]

    This is usually made with pork butt.

    They are very unique! Thanks Red.

    Thanks David! Kiawe is the primary smoke wood here. I also use guava and ohia sometimes as well.

    I did this batch a while ago...

    This is the same thing but char siu style:

    These were done in my old weber kettle. I'm still using that same aluminum pan!

    Edit: char siu! Not sui... I don't know if that's dyslexia or that I dated a Chinese girl named How Sui before!

    Welshrarebit I am still amazed at the color that wood gives the meat. Nice job.
