    Pork belly burnt ends advice

    I’m going to do some pork bell burnt ends Sunday, but need a bit of advice. I’m cooking two pounds worth, but every recipe and video I see calls for 5-8 pounds. So I am wondering if I need to adjust the length of cook.

    Shooting for 275 degrees in the Weber Smokey Mountain. Thinking 3 hours, then slather with a lot of yummy stuff and then cook in a foil pan for an additional hour. Will that be too long? What internal temp do I need to be shooting for?

    Thanks! I’ll reward you with pics of the finished product!

    I don't think that would be too long. The time for the longer piece of belly is based on its thickness. And the thickness of the smaller piece is likely to be pretty similar given the cut. The length hasn't affected the cooking time very much when I've made bacon or siu yuk (crispy roasted belly).

      I do mine by cutting into cubes before they go in the smoker. Cuts cook time way down and allows rub and smoke all around the cubes. I pan them, hit with sauce, and cover for the last couple hours. Then uncover for the final hour.

        This, only addition I make is I cook them on a grate in the pan, gets them out of the grease.

        I also cut mine into cubes and put on smoker. I place them on jerky racks for the smoking portion. When I have enough smoke/color on them I then wrap in foil with a touch of apple cider and honey to braise in the foil after increasing temp from 250 to 300. Then once they are done cover with some sauce and cook uncovered for 30 minutes to tack up the sauce.

      Cubes for sure. You will definitely need more than two pounds though.

      Cubes to get good stuff all around the meat. See below. And it’s a lot less messy and easier to handle when pre cut.

        I agree, cut into cubes to get rub on all sides. Also easier to work with. Two pounds will cook just fine, you've got some good eatin' ahead!

        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.

        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.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        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.
