    Pork belly skin question

    Hello BBQ Neighbor,

    Please see pictures and let me know if this is all fat on the pork belly or the skin. I feel like it is fat.

    I plan on making pork belly burnt ends tomorrow.

          Thank you all! I called Costco and they said skin was on but, that was the front desk and I was trying to look at picture and looks different than the skin.

            Agree, that's a skinless belly.

              You would know if it was skin. The skin is tough.

                    I confirm skin on or skin off when I buy pork belly. With skin on you may notice a nipple or two.
                    Looks like fat to me, no skin. Let us know who it turns out. Pork Belly Burnt End--you are in for a treat, I tell you.
