Char Siu Pork Chops Recipe


  • 8 Pork Chops
  • 12oz Char Siu Marinade *recipe below
  • 1/4 cup Honey (warmed to thin)

Char Siu Marinade

  • 1 Shallot chopped fine
  • 6 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Ginger chopped fine
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Chinese 5 Spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Red Food Coloring


  1. Combine marinade ingredients and stir to dissolve sugar and spices. Reserve 1/2 cup of marinade for glaze
  2. Place pork chops in a large resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over the chops.
  3. Close the top of the bag and move the pork chops around so everything is covered with the marinade. Place in the refrigerator for 12 hours.
  4. Preheat Drum style smoker or other bbq grill/smoker for indirect cooking at 325 degrees.
  5. Remove pork chops from marinade and place on the cooking grate. Cook chops indirect for 15 minutes and flip.
  6. Combine the reserved 1/2 cup of marinade with 1/2 cup of warm honey and brush over chops. Flip the chops every 5-10 minutes and continue to brush with marinade. The Char Siu chops are done when the outside is charred and the internal temperature reaches 150-155 degrees.
