  4. Place cubed pork belly pieces on smoker - cook for 1.5-2 hours
  5. Place pork belly in aluminum pan - pour in brown sugar, honey, and pads of your butter.
  6. Cover, and place in smoker for another 1.5-2hrs (until about 205F).
  7. Grab a new pan.. drizzle with glaze(4 oz apple juice 1 cup of bbq sauce) and shake up so they're covered.
  8. Return pieces to smoker, uncovered for approx 5-10 mins until tacky. 
  9. Enjoy!
