2. Slice into cubes

3. Coat with olive oil

4. Season with Char-Griller Rib Rub


1. Fire up your Char-Griller Grill to 250°.

2. Place drip pan filled with water under the grill grates.

3. Place the pork belly on the baking rack.

4. Spritz every 30 minutes with Apple Juice and rotate the baking rack for even smoking.

5. After 3 hours of smoking, remove the pork belly from the baking rack and place directly in a pan with Apple Juice, Char-Griller Rib Rub, Butter & cover the pan with foil.

6. Place covered pan into the Smoker/Grill and cook for an additional 90 minutes.
