    Curing Bacon (Using amazingribs.com method with Prague salt)

    Today is the day that I smoke my pork belly. The directions say to smoke at 225 degrees over indirect heat. I cook on a Green Mountain Pellet grill. There isn’t really anyway to place it over “indirect heat” unless the heat box suffices.

    Can someone give me some guidance?Thanks!

    Just throw it on the pit, you will be just fine. You are already cooking over indirect heat.

    Make sure to share your results with us!

      All cooking with live fire has two different zones.

      Zone 1 - the flames/fire/heat source are right here and point directly at the food to be cooked.

      Zone 2 - the heat source is not here, this zone is heated by radiant heat and circulating hot air

      This is so that we can cook indirect like an oven, going slower, more consistently, and applying heat much more evenly to the meat.

      As Spinaker says, your pellet grill is, by definition, all indirect heat.

      Here’s a good write up on 2 zone cooking

        Yeah...Pellet is all indirect all the time, unless you have one of those grills that offers searing.

        Just cook it at maybe 200-215 if you get a lot of convection from your grill. I do on my Grilla.
