Slicing pork belly
 
I just finished smoking my first pork belly. Does it matter if you slice long ways or short way.

Thanks

I'd slice it the short way. The strands of meat seem to run in that direction, and make for a better meat to fat ratio.

If it is smoked pork belly, short way, if it is bacon, long way

Thanks guys. It is for bacon. I sliced a piece each way and it looked like it could slice either way.

Yes.

It depends on what you are doing with it.

I dice mine into cubes. I slice it long. It tastes the same...porky goodness.

I have sliced it both ways, doesnt really matter

whichever way fits in my slicer ( I have a small slicer) better is how I slice it
