Pork Belly Burnt Ends are quickly becoming a new barbecue classic. Of course, these are modeled after the burnt ends from the point meat of the brisket, but they stand alone as an incredibly tasty presentation of the pork belly. This one is great year round, whether it’s for game day snacks, summertime BBQs or holiday parties, and is really simple to prepare!
Slice the pork belly into 2” cubes. Rub the cubes with a light coat of oil. Season with the R Butts R Smokin’ Ozark Heat BBQ Rub. Place the pork cubes on a jerky rack and transfer to the smoker, leaving space around each cube. Smoke until a mahogany brown bark is formed on the outside, about 3 hours.
Remove the pork cubes from the grill. Transfer the pork to a sheet of foil, laid out in a single layer. Pour the apple juice and 3 tablespoons honey over the pork. Wrap tightly with the foil. Return the foil to the smoker.
