Pork Belly Burnt Ends Recipe
For the wrap:
For the glaze:
Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill to 250ºF.
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.

Increase the grill temperature to 300ºF. Continue cooking until the cubes are very tender, nearly falling apart, about 45 minutes. The internal temperature will be around 205ºF-210ºF.
Open the foil packet. Pour about 1/2 cup House of Q Apple Butter BBQ Sauce over the pork burnt ends. Drizzle the remaining 3 tbsp Kansas Wildflower Honey over the top as well. Toss gently to coat. Return to the grill and cook until the sauce is tacky, about 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the smoker and serve warm.
