    Pork belly 2 ways

    I finally got to try pork belly this weekend and it was a lot of fun. I picked up a large slab from Costco and split it in half. On both I cross hatched the fat and on one I did my standard rib rub. On the second I rubbed in brown sugar and marinaded in Yoshida's for 2 days. I put them both on the smoker at 240 until they hit 165 and then foiled. the one with the rib rub I pulled at 185 and sliced half like 1/2" thick bacon and the other half I cubed and did burnt ends. I threw the bacon like slabs on my charcoal grill with some sauce for a few minutes and they were good but the burnt ends were fantastic. The second one I left on the smoker until 203. Once I pulled it I scrape the fat cap off and then shredded, it was by far the easiest pork I have ever shredded. came apart like butter. I will be doing pork belly Asian style bowls later in the week.

    Nice! I just love pork belly, smoke it whenever I can. It is so rich and just loaded with flavor!

    I usually pull mine before 203, as I love cutting thick slices. But either way, it's a killer.

      Is there a reason you should not trim the fat cap down before cooking? I have not tried one yet.

        I left it on for moisture, also I find it much easier to scrape off once cooked than trying to slice it off raw.

        Pretty much my attitude too. Very easy to slice off while warm.

        For me, the important thing is to trim off the skin. I leave the fat on. The skin doesn't come out good when smoked for many hours.

      Sounds delicious.

        ** Here's a tip, for the lowest priced Pork Belly, pay a visit to your local Vietnamese Market. Much cheaper than Costco.
