Smoked Pork Belly

I had to try out my new smoker today before I smoke a 19 lb ham next week. The Pork belly came out a gold color. I smoked the belly with Hickory and finished with Apple wood........

    There's fat in bacon? Is that the nasty red stuff that has no flavor -- at least no flavor compared to that good light-colored stuff?

    pnwchef,
    What brand/kind of smoker did you get?
    I'm researching for one for myself.
    I'm thinking electric only to make it a no-brainer and as easy as possible.
    I know it's not the best way to go but at my age, I don't need any more Challenges!

    Hi Foodbme, I use a Brinkmann Duel smoker & gas grill. I bought this so I could have a gas grill on one side and a smoker Charcoal grill on the other side, all in one unit. I would talk with Mar, she is my go to gal for all my BBQ/ smoker info, she knows her stuff.

    The Brinkmann website says this model is no longer available for sale, but that it is still supported by parts, etc.

    Michael, I bought it at Home depot about 6 weeks ago $299 couldn't pass it up..................The only problem with this kind of unit is, you lose heat when you open it to add coals or wood for smoking or maintaining a constant temp. I'm smoking a Ham, it's not that big of a deal but you do need to keep a close eye on it. Having a Wireless BBQ thermometer is priceless..........................

    Bill, I checked and found it is available at Home Depot, and for $299. I'm planning to go up there later today to look; perhaps to buy.

    THis is a 19lb Ham that I put into a Brown sugar cure for 8 days and then washed and soaked it in fresh water for about 8rs......

    I baked the Ham in the oven at 170 degrees for 10 hrs. I then smoked it with Hickory and Apple wood in the smoker for about 4 hrs.........

    I use cast iron skillets to place the hot coals and wood on the bottom of the smoker, this works out well to rotate new coals to keep the temp at a desired level........

    Good deal, Bill!  You also save your bottom grates by using the cast iron pan.
     
    When you make jerky, send me some!
     
    I used to have a Cookshack.  I gave it to my brother because I thought he'd use it more than I did.  I had the small one.  It was too one purpose for me when I could achieve the same end product with one of my other grills.
     
    They are wonderful for a set it and forget it type of smoking.
     
    There are now copies of the Cookshack out there now at pennies on the dollar.  Mine had a list price of $500 and I think the copies are about $200.  I think Sam's carries them.  Major Al has one.

    HI Mar, this one takes care of my needs just fine, I was out side this morning at 5Am getting the smoker going. It's a nice feeling when you you smoke something from start to finish, it may take some work but its a fun process. The thermomotor is a life saver, it keeps me on top of every thing, with out me having to be on top of every thing..........

    Great to know, Bill.  $299 for a double duty grill is a steal!
     
    Even if Charbroil didn't have replacement parts, there are aftermarket companies that will usually have them.

    I let the Smoked Ham sit in the refer over night so I could let it set up a bit. I cut the Ham into large chunks for Baked Ham, Ham Steaks and Sliced ham for sandwiches. The Ham taste was good, not to salty or smokey, a real lean tender Ham taste. I had to make a breakfast Ham & Eggs sandwich.
     
    Michael, I call this the I95 Ham & Egger

     
    Mar, no comments on the broken yoke, I'm a master smoker now, not a Chef.

    Not being Mar I can say something about the broken yolk: In addition to wrecking a perfectly good egg you spelled it wrong.
     
    But that is a fine looking sandwich. Bet it was messy as all get-out to eat. I eat mine over the sink.

     Naw... that broken yolk lets you see the perfectness (??) of the yolk viscosity.
     
    Bill...  you cut with the grain.
