Pork Belly with a twist

I just started selling Pork Belly sandwiches and platters with 2 fried eggs on them. Let me tell you, we are talking incredibly good combo here. If you can score some Belly, you need to try it!

    What happened? Did your smoker die and you ran out of bacon?

    A strange thing happened the other day. I made a couple of toasted cheese sandwiches for lleechef and myself, both with some peppered bacon. I actually enjoyed the bacon.
     
    PS: Don't tell that guy Tom I ate some bacon.

    Finding Pork Belly's out here is an issue.
    I'd be interested to hear how you cook and prepare this dish.

    Most any Asian grocery store will have sliced pork belly available.   Lee Lee at Dobson and Warner should have it.

    Uncured, I smoke it for 6-7 hrs, cool it, slice it in about 1/4" strips, put it on the flat top give it some color on both sides, not dark brown, light, a little crisp on the outside, porky goodness inside. The smoking renders the right amount of fat while leaving enough for a fantastic feel and taste!

    No, I do smoke it with a rub on it, but it's not cured!

    Quite frankly and personally, I sorta like the idea of smoking the pork bellies and as a matter of fact, I am going to buy one at Lay's Meat Market in Knoxville, TN and I am gonna smoke it one my cheap electric smoker with maple hardwood soaked for about 12 hours.  I have to put it far out on my deck because it makes so much smoke.  I will do as Chewie says and smoke it for about 6-8 hours and if it turns out bad, I am gonna haunt Chewie
     
    It seems like a natural and I am gonna do it PDQ.
