    Pbc...pbc...pbc

    I know the title is very misleading but I did get HawkerXP and a few others attention.

    PBC In this instance = Pork Belly Cuts.

    I'm still very much a learner in the smoking department and have learnt a great deal about different cuts of the various proteins and from which sections of the animal they come. This brings me to my conclusion that of all the meat cuts the Pork Belly must be one of the most protean proteins.

    I buy mine whole and butcher them myself. This allows me to cut the belly into different pieces dependant on what it is I plan on cooking.
    Here are some of the Pork Belly Cuts that I think make the belly the most versatile of all the different animal parts / cuts you get.
    In no particular preference order.
    1. Bacon
    2. Ribs
    3. Roast
    4. Burnt Ends
    5. Porchetta
    There may be others but thems the ones I've used the belly for.

    This is why I love Pork Belly.

        I got half way making a homebuilt one and tossed it when I realised I should've used a food safe barrel and not one that contained engine oil before. 🙈

      holehogg Oil has a tendency to linger for years. On the Marshall Islands (Majuro) we lived (mid '90's) where an amphibious fuel depot was located during WWII. On a nice calm evening you could see a nice oil slick going from shore out into the lagoon. Well water was tested, and even though it was "safe" to drink, it still had that octane flavor. After downing a quart of that stuff I could swim much faster. Had to go see the doctor for an emissions check. I was later banned from swimming because of the noxtious fumes coming out of my exhaust. From then on we just drank filtered rain water.

      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

      Placeholder

      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

      Placeholder

      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.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      Placeholder

      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      Placeholder

      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 Undisputed Champion!

      Placeholder

      The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      Placeholder

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

      Placeholder

      GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

      Placeholder

      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      Placeholder

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

      Placeholder

      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'.

      Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

      Placeholder

      A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

      Track Up To Six Temperatures At Once

      Placeholder

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Placeholder

      Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

      Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

      Placeholder

      Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
