    Who invented pork belly burnt ends?

    Does anyone know the history of pork belly burnt ends?

    I was first exposed to them around 2017 but am interested if this has been a thing for longer than that.

    If anyone has information about who invented this dish or how it became popular, other than it was kind of inevitable I'd love to know.

    I did. Trust me. Talked about it in a bar and this happened:

      More seriously, that search uptick does in fact start in March of 2017.

      rickgregory They say on Wharton business radio, "In God we trust but for everything else there's data". Thanks for sharing!

    True “burnt ends” started as brisket off-cuts at Arthur Bryant’s in KC. Everything else is just a viral follow-on IMHO. I don’t call them burnt ends myself. They’re BBQ beef or pork chunks. FWIW.


      Not sure but whoever it was deserves a medal.

        A big, bright and shiny medal.


          The Chinese have had pork belly recipes forever, not quite burnt ends, but ahead of us.

            +1 on Arthur Bryant’s, so I’ve heard or read somewhere.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
