Today I'm making Char Siu Pork in the smoker. We'll start by marinating a pork tenderloin in our Char Siu marinade overnight, then smoke it in the Pit Barrel Cooker.

Char Siu Pork


  • 25 - 1.5 lb pork tenderloin
  • ¼ cup beet juice
  • 5 tablespoon honey
  • ½ tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon 5-spice
  • 1 tablespoon Hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Bee Sting Honey n’ Habanero Pepper sauce (or you favorite habanero hot sauce)

Recipe Instructions

  1. Mix all dry ingredients well in the beet juice
  2. Add the optional Habanero Pepper sauce and mix well.
  3. Add the marinade and pork tenderloin to a bag or bowl, place in the refrigerator and marinate over night.
  4. The next day, remove the pork tenderloin from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  5. Hang the pork tenderloin in the pre-heated Pit Barrel Cooker with apple wood chunks
  6. Cook the pork tenderloin until it reaches 146 degrees F. For this cook, the cook time was 36 minutes.
  7. Remove from the cooker, let rest for 10 minutes and serve!
