I enjoy smoking meats in my Grilla pellet smoker and just picked up some pork belly. I have nothing but time due to the quarantine lockdown, so I plan on using it more often. I picked up some pork belly and wondered if any of you fine gentleman have tried it in a smoker. Here’s some pork spare ribs from last week, delish!

I've not done pork belly but have done most everything else. The newest one is smoked reverse seared steak. We smoke it @ 225 for 35-45 minutes, depending on the thickness until it reaches 120 (rare). We then take them off and raise the temp to 400 and sear them for 1 1/2 minutes a side. They end up at a perfect medium rare and are truly amazing.

This all looks good enough for me to disavow being a Vegan.

That's it. Just did it. Not a Vegan.

Oh wait, I never was.

If we weren't supposed to eat animals they wouldn't be made out of meat.

Side Note: Clever, short (1 page) SciFi story - "They're Made Out Of Meat!"

Carry on.

More pics please. I think I need a smoker...

I agree that you need a smoker. Here's a picture of Chile Verde marinated then smoked Tri-Tip that we just devoured for dinner. So Damn good!

Looking good! I have never been a huge turkey fan, but a few years back I started smoking them for Turkey-Day and have been hooked ever since.

Did you brine it prior to smoking by any chance?

No, I haven’t tried brining yet, but the last turkey I smoked turned out great without brining, so I did it the same way again. I may try brining next time. :)

I have a 20 year old smoker. Side box charcoal setup. I’ve done Turkeys that took almost 2 days to slow cook. It was 28 lbs. My alltime fav was the rib eye roast for Christmas one year. It was around 20F outside but I was determined. Best dinner ever. Most of the sides got cooked in there too. But, a quick cook of a few racks of ribs well rubbed and slow cooked till it falls off the bone is callin my name right now! 🤣
