I need a good recipe for smoking whole pork belly. I have been a member of the forum for almost 12 years but in the past few years I have not viewed or participated in the forum. Need some help to get back into using and talking to you guy's again. Yes, I still use my Egg quite often. I will never give that up. lol

    Hi Jerry,

    This is a great resource for making bacon or pancetta:

    Great to have you back! (not that I was around back then but...speaking for those that were..)

    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    JW +1 to the recipe above.  I have done it several times and the out come has been very tasty.  There are only the two of use so when we buy a belly we break it down into 4th's.  I use both fresh herbs and dried herbs.

    Here are a couple of pictures.  I like to capture the drippings so that explains my set up.

    My dogs love pork belly.  I've never had it.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.
