Season the pork belly with dry rub of your choice, mine is in the recipe card below. I used a combination of salt, pepper, paprika, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and brown sugar. If you follow a low carb diet, you can use a low-carb brown sugar substitute.
Once the pork belly slices reach a temperature of 165 F, wrap in foil and smoke to 30-60 more minutes, until the temperature reaches 200 F. You can also brush with bbq sauce before you wrap in the foil (I like to add the sauce later).
