    Damm..... I am impressed it is on my to do list. Maybe one for the AR team to add to the site ?? Thanks for taking the time to photograph and document it so well for all of us.


      Oh my. That was solid. Wow!


        It's funny that you compared the porchetta to Lechon, because I have been wanting to do a porchetta (in the downsized approach you took) but treated and flavored like lechon. Actually went to the butcher to get a belly to do it, but the butcher apologized, saying the delivery was screwed up and all their bellies had no skin. So, it will have to wait until next time... Great looking cook!


          Very impressive!


            Unbelievable! Into the recipe area for that!


              Troutman, THAT is one epic cook! I’ll be trying this soon for sure!


                And I have one more thing to add, masterful!


                  Excellent pics and right up

                  porketta is a holy grail for me
                  slice of heaven


                    Fantastic! Love the step-by-step procedure. At my butcher shop, we do porchettas often for our guests! Speaking of which, we actually made a sausage with the flavor profile of porchetta. Can’t wait to try it!


                      Troutman, been a few years since you posted this, any update or something you would do differently. If this was just a belly with no tenderloin in the center, I’m guessing the finish temp should be higher than 145°?

                        Bacon is 150 or so, so I'd take this one a BIT higher but not a ton higher.

                        I've looked at cooks like this and I'd also use the tenderloin. I know there are a lot of folks who love pure belly porchetta, but to me it's too fatty, though that depends on the belly's fat/meat ratio of course. I like the contrast of belly to lean meat you get in the traditional prep.

                        And I have 2 bellies in the freezer. Hmm.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    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.

                    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.
