Mock Head Cheese & Bone-in/Skin-on Pork Belly/Spare Ribs

Made a 'head cheese' without a head. I used a ham hock and pig trotters instead. I started it on the smoker for flavor, then moved it to a stovetop just to make it faster.

I basically ate the pork bellies like they were just really meaty spare ribs. I marinated them in a maple/brandy mixture overnight, then smoked it in mesquite/apple wood. Also used some Simply Marvelous Cherry Rub. I really loved how meaty these ribs were.

The full rack of ribs was 11 lbs, so I actually only bought a bit over half of it (6.5 lbs worth).

Before setting:

And pr0n of my meal!
