    Did a belly yesterday on the Akorn. Fresh skinned non smoked.

    I started with frying up some bacon.


    I needed the bacon grease for this.


    I added some Scotts to the grease for basting the belly.



    Next i took the belly from the vac bag. This one i skinned.


    Ready to score the top, not too deep.



    Had the Akorn heating steady at 225*


    I basted the belly top and bottom every hour. Flipped and turned as not to burn.


    Total cook time was 4 hours. Temps with the help of the TTT between 225-250.


    Belly done. I wrapped in foil for 20 mins or so.


    Pulled real nice. I did have just a tad under 1/4lb of fat i cut off.


    My wife ate a bunch, Said this is good pork. Looks like i will do more belly than butts.

    Best $30 i spent in a long time. Easy simple design, no plugs, batteries, probes. Operates like a car thermostat.

    Just me, but I don't think I would ever pull a belly! Slice it 1"  wide....maybe cubed, but never pull.
