    Pork belly burnt ends tactics

    Howdy y’all, getting ready to make pork belly burnt ends and have been checking out many recipes and techniques. Most use an aluminum pan with foil for the braising phase, but one I found makes tight fitting foil packets with a little juice and honey. He claims pan with foil creates steam which washes off the bark, but the packets don’t.

    Have any of y’all heard of this or tried it, or does it really have an affect on the finished product?

    Thank y’all.

    I follow Malcom Reeds recipe as written and they turn out great…..usually it’s what everyone remembers!

      I do use less butter. But THIS the best guide to PBBEs.

      The main issue I have with PBBE; I can not control myself.
      They pair well with any and all beverages.
      I can eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
      In my belly is where they belong.

    I haven't had any issues with the bark washing off in a pan with foil. Like others mentioned I somewhat follow the Malcom Reed method and they have always turned out excellent.

      Based upon how I do mine, if'n yer bark washes off, ya didn't have any bark, to start with...

      Yalls mileage may vary...

    (1) Pork Belly Burnt Ends Video - Bing video

    This short video says it all. Your question is answered, or not. Don't matter. Pork Belly Burnt Ends are great, "finger-licking good".
    I suggest try it both ways. Then the one you like best make it your own.

      I'm planning to smoke some PBBE this afternoon using the Meat Church recipe/technique. I noticed the Snake River Farms video suggests a smoke temp of 250F for 3 hours but the Meat Church recipe recommends 275F for 3 hours. Any consensus on which temp/time combo is better? Any other pearls of wisdom from you PBBE vets are welcome and encouraged.

      Thanks!

        When doing pork I’ve never been able to distinguish between things cooked at 250 and things cooked at 275. In most pits you can get a swing in between the two with no problems caused. Go with whichever one is easier to get your cooker to hold.

        +1. You'll find little or no difference. Of course that's also dependent on the type of cooker, but I don't see any real change. The hotter temp may actually get them done faster.
