  • 3 lb pork belly
  • For the rub:
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar or low-carb brown sweetener
  • 2 tsp salt — I use Himalayan
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper — optional
  • pinch of cinnamon — optional
  • Apple cider vinegar or apple juice for spraying
  • bbq sauce for serving — optional


  1. Source your pork belly. You can either buy one big piece and cut it or get pre- cut pork belly from your butcher or the store.
  2. Make sure the skin of the pork belly is removed.
  3. Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  4. Preheat your smoker to 225 F.
  5. 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.
  6. Place pork belly sliced on the smoker and smoke until the internal temperature reaches 165 F.
  7. Spray with apple juice or apple cider vinegar 2-3 times (optional).
  8. 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).
  9. Remove from the smoker, cut into pieces and enjoy.
