About this Recipe

It is easier than you think!! Find a local butcher who can get the pork belly for you.

Ingredients

6 lb Pork Belly
5 tbsp Kosher Salt
3 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Curing Salt (Prague Powder)

Directions

Mix the dry ingredients and thoroughly coat the pork belly with all of it.

But the belly and a parchment lined baking tray and top with a sheet of parchment and an other tray. Weight the top tray with cans of a heavy frying pan.

Allow to sit in the fridge for 5 to 7 seven days

Rinse pork belly well with cold water. Place on a rack back in the fridge over night, un-covered.

Smoke at 200 F until an internal temperature of 160 F is reached.
(If you like a lighter smoke flavour only smoke for one hour then continue to cook with out smoke until 160 F is reached)

Cool in fridge for several hours before slicing and frying the delicious stuff up!
