Here is a pic of the pork belly unwrapped after it rest in the fridge and in the sink just before rinsing and soaking.
This is the pork bellies after a few fry tests and rinsing and soaking for 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get the salt taste down.
Pork bellies getting a light shake of the Tatonka Dust to freshen the flavor. Then the pork bellies went back into the fridge unwrapped overnight to form a nice pellicle on them.
In the smoker getting 14 hours of apple smoke from the tube smoker and the smoker cold smoking at 100º.
Close up in the smoker.
Pork bellies just out of the smoker, they have a good color to them!
