Default Punked Porchetta and PBBEs

I had plans to cook a Porchetta this weekend, but I got screwed over by the meat clerk.
I specifically asked for a whole pork belly skin on, and what did I find when I got home?
Yep, the dagblasted skin had been removed.
How can a guy cook a Porchetta without crispy skin?
He can't, Grrrrr!

So what the hell, I'm gonna do a bastardized version sans skin and see how it comes out.
I bought all the fresh herbs that I don't have in my garden, so I need to utilize them.
Fresh fennel, sage, garlic and lemon, the rest I have.
The only ingredient I could not find was fresh pork liver, guess I can live without it.

The other half of the belly I cubed for Burnt Ends, I know I'll get some satisfaction from them at least.


So here we go with today's smoke.


Menu
Punked Porchetta
PBBEs
Dessert (?)


Punked Porchetta


1 skin-on Pork Belly
1 Pork loin
Fennel fronds and seed
Rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, crushed red pepper, black pepper, salt
Pork liver (optional)
Olive oil
Butchers twine
Trim fat and membrane from half a pork loin
Trim pork belly to fit wrapped around the pork loin

Score the skin of the pork belly, do not cut into the meat
Rub pork belly with salt and then air dry in the fridge for at least 12hrs, 24hrs + is better, this is to help in turning that skin into cracklings
Pull pork belly from fridge, flip meat side up and salt, then spread with minced garlic
Finely chop the herbs/spices and spread atop pork belly
Place pork loin in center and wrap pork belly around it, truss tightly with twine (about every inch or less)
Brush lightly with olive oil


Okay, here is where recipes go all over the place, 'How to Cook It'
Traditional Italian, rotisserie over open fire
Various oven methods, hot then slow, slow then hot and etc


But I'm smoking it, so here is how I did it.
Fired up the smoker to 275°-300° with hickory
I also preheated my oven to 500°
Cooked this to an IT of 145° and then moved it to the oven and crisped the outside
I got the fat layer to an awesome color and crunch with a beautiful juicy burst of flavor in every bite


Herbs and Spices













Down goes the loin




All trussed up




Out of the smoker and headed for the 500° oven



Finished







The Grand Finale/Slices







Pork Belly Burnt Ends


Cubed pork belly
Pork rub
BBQ sauce
Honey
Butter


Cube the pork belly and cover in rub
I like to bag it overnight before cooking
Fire up the smoker to 250°-275° with hickory
Smoke cubes till nicely tender and colored
Then pan and add, BBQ sauce, honey, butter and rub
Cover and return for about an hour
Then uncover, stir and let'em go another hour

Continuation


For appetizers/side I put together some Tomato/Mozzarella/Basil drizzled with a Balsamic Glace.
These were a hit and I had to refill the plate 3-4 times





Then sauteed some Asparagus and Onion in butter.
(no pics)



A dessert was called for so I made some Apple/Pear Slab Pies.
I practically had to stand guard on these before dinner

Thanks.
It's not too bad, what with me only being a weekend warrior in the kitchen.
I generally keep it under a $100., usually under $60.

Per request I made two more today.
These didn't get iced, these were sprinkled with coarse raw sugar before baking.
And I used canned apple pie filling which wasn't near as good as my homemade.
