    Yep Billy, crisp it on the grill, intense flavor, not salty like bacon, which it actually is, before curing!

    I'm becoming a big fan of pork belly.
     
    I had it at The Nook in West Los Angeles where they served it as a hunk about 2 inches by 3 inches by 2 inches.  It was not crispy at all and melted in your mouth.
     
    I believe it might have been braised in a sauce made with star anise which was served with it.  Whatever, it was quite good.
     
    It's showing up on a lot of menus here.

    Chinese 5 Spice!  That's probably what I had.  Succulent!

    Delicious...I love pork belly and have it frequently. I will cook it in some Asian manner or straight up smoked and BBQ'd.  I try for a nice smoky ring on the outside.
    I buy mine at either the Latin or Asian markets, which makes me wonder how it is used in Mexico?

    Chef, did you just use the spice as a rub, or make a sauce, if so, care to share the recipe?
