    There are so many options to this cut of pork… and I love cooking with it. My way is very simple, and it allows me to use it in many different recipes…. mostly I use it in salads, tacos, oriental dishes, sandwiches, or just plain. It’s a regular staple around my house, and like I said… you can use it in just about anything that calls for pork. It’s such a cheap cut of meat, that most oriental restaurants use it in just about all of their dishes that call for pork.

    10-12lb belly
    Your choice dry-rub

    I let it sit at room temp for about an hour coated with my choice of dry-rub.
    Set up my smoker for 210-225 cooking temp.
    Fatty side up, and I smoke for about 6 hours before I test it.
    The fat should be like gelatin when you poke your finger in it.
    The meat will come apart very easily.
    The bark should be crisp… of course!
    Internal temp should be 175-180.
    Can take up to 8-10 hours.

    I think it’s best served right away after resting for about 15-20 minutes but, I have done very well with left-overs if they are stored properly.

    Sorry Ernest, I didn't see your question about pork belly availability at Costco. Out of (5) Costco's in my area, only (2) carry it on a regular basis. I called a couple different ones and found the nearest one that had it in stock. They even told me how many they had at the time I called (25). It definitely saves a wasted trip.

    It's been out here for at least 3 months but we pay $2.99/lb because we're special.

    I just bought (2) pork bellies at the Roseville, CA Costco this morning @ 2.29/lb.. Almost forgot the maple syrup. Naturally I'm making bacon.

    Spicy Caramel pork belly.
    Slow cook it for hours or sous vide. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.
    Sear and briefly simmer in an Asian caramel sauce made with vietnamese fish sauce, brown sugar, thai chilis, a bunch of thinly sliced garlic and rice wine vinegar.
    My apologies for not having a proper recipe, I just mix the sauce ingredients, taste and adjust on the fly.



    Or do a sous vide porchetta



    or Charroasted porchetta

    Rub it with italian herbs, lemon zest, some heat, salt and pepper,



    Tie it and roast.






    Slice and make killer sammiches
