Smoked Bacon Steak Recipe | Smoke A Pork Belly Like A Brisket (sort of)

This is my take on Morton's Bacon Steak recipe inspired by recent videos by other YouTubers on smoking pork belly like a brisket. The recipe is very simple and the key is to keep your smoker between 250-275 for 7 or 8 hours. During the cook, I realized that are some aspects to smoking a brisket that aren't needed when smoking a pork belly which makes this process extremely easy. The end result was thick slices of bacon heaven that was extremely juicy, tender and flavorful. If you love bacon, then you owe it to yourself to give this recipe a try!

Ingredients

  • Pork Belly (whole slab)
  • Mayonnaise for the slathering binder (you can also use mustard or another binder of your choice)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Coarse Ground Pepper

Slather the mayo on both sides of the pork belly. Pork belly is naturally salty so be careful not to use too much salt. Combine the salt & pepper into a shaker and distribute it all over the fat & meaty side of the pork belly. I decided to leave the fat side completely intact without any additional trimming. You can trim some of the fat if you'd like but leave at least 1/4" of the fat cap.

Setup your smoker for 250 degrees & try to keep the temp between 225 - 275 throughout the cook. During the cook I decided that spritzing and wrapping the pork belly was not necessary. Smoke until the pork belly is probe tender at around 200 - 203 degrees.  Let it rest for around 15 minute and cut into thick slices (be ready for all of that bacon grease!)

Lessons Learned After Owning A LSG Offset Smoker for 3 Years

I have happily owned my #LoneStarGrillz 20x42" #Offset #Smoker for 3 years. Along the way, many of my processes have changed as I've learned how to master my smoker and consistently produce great tasting food.

 

If you already own a stick burner, hopefully this video will provide you with a few ideas to improve your process or make it more efficient. If you are thinking about buying a stick burner, this video should help give you some idea of what it's like to own one. I'll discuss my processes for:

 

  • Cleaning the interior and exterior of the smoker
  • Starting a fire in the firebox
  • Cooking
  • Which add-ons I think are still valuable
