Pork Belly:

Honey GLD BBQ Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp of Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of Brown Sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp of Honey
  • 2 tsp of GLD FYR Hot Sauce


  • Begin 24 hours before cooking. Pat the skin dry on your pork belly then thoroughly poke tiny holes all over the skin.
  • Add a layer of kosher salt over the skin, then place in the fridge uncovered.
  • Let sit for at least 24 hours to dry out the skin.
  • Next, heat up a skillet over medium low heat and add all the ingredients for the Honey GLD BBQ sauce.
  • Let simmer until thickened (about 10 minutes) then pull off and let cool. Store in the fridge until the next day.
  • Next day, pull out the pork belly and brush off all the salt from the skin.
  • Flip the pork belly over and make slits every 2” both ways making sure not to pierce the skin.
  • Slather the pork belly with GLD FYR hot sauce and season generously with Sticky Bourbon Brown Ale Rub.
  • Preheat the smoker to 250F for indirect cooking.
  • Add the pork belly skin side up to the smoker and let cook for 3 hours.
  • Once the meat is 175F internal and the skin is a light red color, brush some white vinegar over the top.
  • Heat up your oven to 400F and place the pork belly on a baking sheet with a wire rack.
  • Place in the oven to cook for 8-12 minutes or until the skin has bubbled up and is very crispy.
  • Pull out and let cool.
  • Drizzle some warmed up Honey GLD BBQ Sauce over the meat side of the pork belly, then slice up the burnt ends. Serve and enjoy!
