For the Love of BBQ: Pork Belly Pinwheels


Delicious twist on Pork Belly with an Asian flavor! 

Pork Belly Pinwheels

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 3 -4 Hours

Yields: 12-15 Servings

If you have had pork belly before, this is a different twist and so tasty. First, grab a few skewers (metal works easier) and slice up your pork belly into one inch strips. You should be able to get six or seven pinwheels out of it. Roll them up into pinwheels, and put them on the skewers. Lanes BBQ makes a fantastic rub with an Asian twist named Q Nami. This is sweet with a little heat. You can also use your favorite rub on this. Season both sides, and let it sit for about 20 minutes before putting on the smoker at 250 degrees. This will cook for about 3 to 4 hours. While it is cooking, get your favorite teriyaki sauce and a stick of butter. Bring a sauce pan to a boil with your sauce and butter stirring frequently. Simmer for 5 minutes to thicken up. You are looking for an internal of 190-195 degrees on your pork belly. Once finished, pull and brush with your teriyaki glaze. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve. 

Pit Master Tip: Pork belly is a very fatty piece of meat. Most people make bacon out of it, but if you cook it correctly and render the fat out, it is the best bite in BBQ! I pulled these at 195 degrees internal. Every smoker is different, and cooking time may vary. If you notice the fat is not rendered enough, keep them on and cook longer. You will not dry it out by cooking it longer.
