Introducing my new, Smoked BBQ Pork Belly recipe. Its basically bacon covered in tangy bbq sauce. Start off with marinating the pork belly in bbq sauce for over 4 hours. Let the tangy and sweet flavor seep into the meat. Then, smoke this bad boy over some hot Cowboy Charcoal for a couple of hours. You will be left with a glorious chunk of smoked meat that is almost edible candy.


What to serve with the Smoked BBQ Pork Belly!


Having Smoked BBQ Pork Belly is starting to become a family tradition in the summer. We love the tangy and fatty pieces of pork belly that are made over the fire from the dish. So what do you serve with it? Well besides a glass of ice cold beer, I highly recommend a few different things:


  1. Grilled Street Corn – This is also a family favorite. Grilled corn with cotija cheese, spice and some other delicious ingredients. Make sure to find a quality recipe, but I highly recommend making this as a side.
  2. Sugar Snap Peas – My sugar snap peas recipe is super simple: lemon juice, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. Top it all with some panic crumbs and you are in heaven.
  3. Chile Lime Shrimp – You may not believe me, but pork belly surf and turf is awesome. Try it yourself here!



Glistening with bbq sauce!
