Good afternoon

It has been a while since I posted a cook, so I thought I would share some q-view today: pork belly burnt ends.

I had some pork belly (about 7lbs total I am estimating) that had been in the freezer for a while and needed to be eaten. So, let’s make some delicious meat candy.

Onto a jerky rack and then into the Traeger, running at 250*:

I'm watching. I have a piece of smoked belly left over from a bacon smoke I was thinking of doing with
the tips of ribs I trimmed from a couple of spares for the kids and grandkids tomorrow.
I love meat candy....

After about an hour and 40 minutes in the smoke. Temps are ranging from about 160 - 175*. I’ll check them again in about 30 minutes.

After about 2.5 hours in the smoke, they are probing very tender. Into foil boats, with some extra run, a splash of BBQ sauce, and a little honey.

After about an hour in the foil boats, into a pan with some sauce. Back on to let the sauce set up.

Don't tell me you didn't try one or two. I would have LOL!

They turned out great!

Total time in the Traeger was about 3.5 hours. I realized that I did not slice up the cubes very consistently...some were a little bigger, some were a little smaller.

Paired them up with some smoked sausage, pickles, and some pickled red onions.
