  • Pat pork belly dry with paper towel
    1.5 lbs pork belly
  • Slice pork belly with a boning knife
    - If pork belly is thick - cut into slabs - like thick bacon slices - approx 3/4” thick 
    - If pork belly is thin - cut into bite size pieces - approx 1-2”

  • Coat all sides of pork belly with your favorite bbq rub - I always use Historic BBQ Red for pork 
    1/4 cup Historic BBQ Red seasoning
