How to Prepare Pork Belly Burnt Ends on the Big Green Egg (Or Kamado Joe)


The pork belly charred ends are roasted at temperatures ranging from 225 to 250 degrees. Get the Big Green Egg going and set the temperature to 225 to 250 degrees. Because they are indirectly cooked, make sure the plate setter or conve”egg”tor is likewise in place.

How Should Pork Belly Burnt Ends Be Prepared?

Pork belly burned ends for the Big Green Egg are really simple to make. To begin, make sure the pork belly’s skin has been removed. I advocate having the butcher do this since it adds weight, and because pork belly is usually sold by the pound, you may as well get more bang for your money!


Start by cutting the pork belly into 1 1/2′′ by 1 1/2′′ cubes after it has been cooked.


Place the pork belly chunks in a bowl after they’re done.


Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the cubes and toss to combine.


While mixing, liberally apply an even coat of Dizzy Dust by Dizzy Pig to the cubes to ensure that they are evenly coated.

On the Big Green Egg, how do you cook pork belly burnt ends?


It’s time to put the pork belly burned ends on the Big Green Egg now that they’ve been prepped (or Kamado Joe). Simply place them on the grate and cover the Big Green Egg, keeping the temperature between 225 and 250 degrees. The pork belly cubes will next be cooked for three hours.


After three hours is up it is time to pull the pork belly cubes. Place them directly in a tin foil pan and add about a 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce, 2 Tablespoons of butter & 2 Tablespoons of Honey. Give it a mix.


Return the tin foil pan to the Big Green Egg and cover it with tin foil. After that, they’ll be roasted for approximately an hour and a half, or until the internal temperature hits 202 degrees.


Pull the tin foil from the top of the foil pan after the pork belly burned ends have achieved an internal temperature of around 202 degrees. Cook for another 10–15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened somewhat.

You’re finished now. Pull the charred ends off the pork belly, dish them, and serve. Enjoy!
