Merry Christmas! At least from this time zone. Here are some follow up pictures:

Bacon


And ham, after the first smoke. I am hesitating as to whether I will do a second smoke or not. Any thoughts? I have a glaze all made up, made with New Make rye white lightning, dr pepper, oj, cinnamon, cloves & brown sugar. Was thinking to just throw it in a low oven to warm it up & get the glaze on, but I'd also like to have that nice cross hatching.



And of course I had to take a slice to test it:


Pretty tasty really!

Looks awesome Phil! Did you save some of that ham for New Years' day? For good luck...

Euge, I cannot believe I forgot about that - the ham bone has been thrown away. But, yes, we have about 5 pounds of sliced ham left. Need to find some black eyed peas...

I thought the ham hock was supposed to be a symbol of not going hungry the following year? That's what we were taught in Arkansas anyway.

We always have a fresh ham, blackeyed peas, and greens and mashed potatoes  The brown gravy from a fresh ham roast is the best.  Not BBQ, but this is our tradition, family is from western NC.

Sounds good to me.

smoked it at 250 for 4.5 hours.  first i ground some cloves, allspice and black pepper and added that to soy sauce, red boat fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, coconut vinegar and local honey and used that as a marinade.  then i made a reduction with  cracked black pepper, lazy magnolia southern pecan nut brown ale, sriracha, red boat fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, ground nutmeg & honey.....

turned out great for my first pork belly rodeo.

i dunno, it looks pretty good doesn't it.  hahaha.  just kidding.  i thought it was great.  a lot like ribs, but meatier.  i think if i cubed it now and deep fried it, it would be completely off the hook.  the reduction shocked me as well.  it was super.
