BBQ Pork Belly

You will need:

  • pork belly1 pork belly
  • brown sugar1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • paprika1/4 cup of paprika
  • black pepper1/4 cup of black pepper
  • salt1/4 cup of salt
  • chili powder2 tablespoons of chili powder
  • garlic powder2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • onion powder2 tablespoons of onion powder
  • cayenne pepper1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper


  1. First, combine brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. This will be your dry rub.
  2. Next, apply the rub evenly to your pork belly. Make sure to cover all sides to infuse the meat with flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to a medium heat. This is essential for slow and even cooking.
  4. Using a sharp knife, score the skin of the pork belly in a diamond pattern. This helps the fat render out and prevents the belly from curling up during grilling.
  5. Place the pork belly on the grill, skin side up, and cover. This allows the heat to circulate and cook the meat evenly.
  6. Grill for about 2-3 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature to ensure it's cooked perfectly.
  7. Finally, let the pork belly rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, making it more tender and flavorful.
