Two days ago I came across pork bellies at costco. Since then I have been using the search function to do some research on pork belly's. This is my understanding on things with pork belly,
-Pork belly will have a different flavor/texture when cured vs. seasoned and smoked.
- If it is just seasoned and smoked/cooked it will not have the bacon flavor.
-Pork belly can be cooked to a high IT and be pulled like pork shoulder.
If everything above is correct, would the following technique work:
Cure the belly then smoke/cook it until IT is in the 200 range. Pull the pork and then fry the pulled belly in a frying pan to get a pulled bacon like consistency flavor??
