Cirk, on the pork belly, I would suggest: Smoke it at 225F for 2 hours, then flip and sear it, cast iron or over direct flame. It takes just a couple of minutes and it will crisp up. Now, wrap in paper or foil, this sounds weird, as it will make it less crispy. But, this will result in a nice caramelized flavor on the surface, far better than just smoking it. Also, if you have a slice or two of good bacon, throw it into the broth. The fat really improves the broth.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
