Berkshire Pork Belly Burnt Ends

Traditional burnt ends come from the "point" of a whole brisket. These Berkshire Pork Belly Burnt ends give our Wagyu Brisket Burnt Ends a run for their money for half the price and a third of the smoking time! Perfect for an appetizer to impress guests, or to make into a meal for the family.



  • Gather your ingredients

  • Cut your pork belly up into 1 - 1 & 1/2 inch cubes. Toss in a mixing bowl with olive oil
     The olive oil will help your rub stick to the burnt ends so make sure you use enough!

  • Place your seasoned pork belly cubes on your smoker spaced apart at 250
     We placed ours on a smaller, upper rack from the smoker to separate from the main grate, but you can place yours on a wire cooling/baking rack, or right on the grates
