Not posted in a while, but have been smoking.

Smoked some pork belly in the MES30 (hence no ring) with a cherry, maple, hickory pellet blend. Finished on the bbq with direct heat.

Only a single person portion. Didn’t finish it all, so having the rest sliced up with rice tonight.

Are pork belly burnt ends supposed to be soft and chewy, with melty fat? Or are they supposed to be more like bacon, harder and chewy with a ham-like meat and firm chewy fat?

Looks delicious! How was smoke flavor?
Flavour was good, nice and light.

I really dried the pellets out before lighting them. That may have contributed in some way.

I would say definitely melty fat.

I got some on a food truck yesterday and it wasn't anything like what I make at home.
