my first pork belly.....
 
thanks to all the guys in my other thread that gave me ideas. this really turned out great. won't be my last pork belly.

first i ground some cloves, allspice and black pepper and added that to soy sauce, red boat fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, coconut vinegar and local honey and used that as a marinade. after about four hours, i smoked it, indirect, at 250 for about 4.5 hours.

it was fantastic. the sauce really turned out nicely and complemented to pork very well. i'm surprised it turned out as i suck at making sauces.

probably not? :confused:

was i supposed to?

Wow, Deepsouth, you got it going on! Nice!

DON"T REMOVE THE SKIN! Fry up the bacon with the skin and eat the skin after eating the goodness around it. It's crispy, and delicious! That was one of the best parts of bacon my Dad used to cure when he raised hogs years ago.

Looks delicious!

I don't know....

I've seen bellies cooked both ways but I've always done them without the skin. When I've done skin separate it takes hours to get crispy, so I was curious how you rated the skin flavor and texture wise.... I mean it sure looks good and all... just wondering.
