I saw this recipe/cook online and though it sounded good.


So I bought some pork belly and got it started today. In the video, they had it cook about 4-5 hours. They don't say what temp they took it up to. Reading online the temps range anywhere from 160°F to 200°F.

My cook is about 2.5 hours in and the whole thing hit 200°F. I think I will leave it on for just a bit longer. I am nervous that it got done so fast. I've never cooked it before so I get quite antsy when the cook seems to fast/slow. What do you guys think?

Got my homemade rub on it with a bit of oil to crisp it up.


Got it sitting on a bed of carrots, onions and celery with a bit of apple cider.


This is about 2 hours in. I took some of the juice out but it's still on there as we speak.

Looks done to me! Let us know how it was! I smoked a hunk before it was way to rich and I even but it on my gas grill to render extra fat out of it. Looking forward to plated pics if you got any!

It came out good for my first attempt. Some parts had too much fat in it. The flavors the carrots and onion took on are amazing. I got the juice save up and cooling, I'll remove the fat and make a nice au jus with it. Got some of the veggies to go on the side with it too.

Here are a few pieces chopped up and ready to go. The red one was the edge of the belly.


Perfect amount of fat to meat to skin ratio on these pieces.


Not exactly neat but it sure tastes great!
