Barbecue sauce is made with shallot, garlic, ginger, red yeast rice, five spice powder, rice wine, soy sauce, sugar, hoisin sauce, maltose, honey, green onion, and marinate for 6 hours.

Chef John uses Boston Butt, a cut of pork that comes from the upper part of the shoulder from the front leg. You can also replace it with pork belly.
