Pork Belly a la BBQ PitBoys

Here's the video that I watched and followed:

I followed pretty much what they do in the video.
SPG for the rub. Ended up going with just one 12oz can of beer.

Used an extra basket to try to get the kettle up in temperature for the first half hour.

After 30 minutes, I removed the Weber basket and went with the homemade basket.
The temperature then settled into the high end of 325-350℉ range...

I added some lit charcoal around 3 hours in.
Total time was 4.5 hours.  Let it rest for about 20 minutes.

This meat was insanely rich tasting.
The crackling was like chewing on an un-popped kernel of popcorn. :o
I will definitely be doing this again!

Thanks for looking. :D

WOW, so many cooks posted I need to do and so little time, maybe I'll fire up about 25 or so grills and do them all in one day LOL
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

I have made pork belly burnt ends a few times, but have always cut the belly into cubes before starting the cook.  I have not tried a belly with the skin still on.  As others have mentioned, this is now on my list of cooks to try.  Great looking belly MacEggs.  Thanks much for sharing.

If you like pork belly done this way then try to cook  some shoulder. This one was 15 lbs bone in with skin, done on my 26. Took approx. 4,5h at high temp. Was slightly overcooked (172 internal) but really delicious[emoji108]
