Finally my pork bellies are finished. After salt and sugar curing the pork for 6 days I had the pleasure of putting the bellies on the egg. I was a bit nervous of how they were going to turn out (I had recieved lots of great advice on the forum) I was draining the liquid each day and rewrapping the bellies. Next time I try this I am going let the bellies remain in the liquid and see what happens.
I am quite happy with the final results.

The egg had hickory chips and was at 200 degress for 3 hours.
