well, i pulled the couple pieces of pork belly i had curing in the fridge for the past week and a half. washed them well and let them soak in ice water for about an hour. one just had insta cure rubbed on it and the other same except a couple days ago i added some home made maple syrup to it. sliced off a couple pieces from each and threw it in the ol frypan and tasted great, the maple syrup stuff could tell needs to be cooked slower as the sugar lets it burn easier. but the maple flavor is there in a tasteful amount. so its under the fan rite now and to the smoker it goes this afternoon. will update with some qview later on.
