1 5 pound Christiansen Family Farm & Hog Heaven Berkshire Pork belly skin removed and cut into even quarters.
3 cups apple juice / Cider
½ cup BBQ Rub of the cooks choice. ( We are using ours, but Webber Kansas City BBQ Rub works great)
2 Tablespoons Cider vinegar
4 Tablespoons Honey (we will be using Utah Sun Flower Honey)
Seasoning to taste.
Place the belly in a 12 inch Dutch oven with the vinegar, apple juice, and rub. Place the lid and arrange 15 coals on top and 12 on the bottom. You will cook this way till the belly reaches 190 degrees. Let the belly rest for 20 minutes, and reduce the braising liquid to make a jus. Coat the belly with honey, and a dash of the BBQ seasoning. You will then place about 40 coals in a Lodge mfg hibachi grill or under a 14 inch DO lid, let it get hot then sear the belly to a golden brown. Before serving drizzle with a bit of the braising juice. Enjoy!!!
As always these hippies reserve the right to season and enhance as they deem fit. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!
**Webber BBQ seasoning can be purchased at Sams Club.
***While we are using a Utah pork producer, you can use any pork belly from your local butcher or Hispanic market.
