Slicing steaks

  • The first thing that you want to do when you create amazing pork belly steaks is getting the right fat to meat ratio.
  • Slice half way in to the fat and seperate the skin from the meat along with some of that fat as well. That's why it's so important to buy it as a whole; it gives you control.
  • Slice the pieces of pork belly into 5 steaks.
  • Create the PitmasterX’s Classic BBQ rub.
  • Season the pork belly steaks on all sides.

Pellet Grill setup

  • Load op the smoker with hickory pellets. You don't need that mucht for this hook around a liter and a half will do just fine. That's around 33 ounces.
  • Fire up the burnhard pellet smoker and set the temperature to 148 degrees celcius
  • Set the porkbelly steaks on the grill grate and let hem smoke in peace.

Creating a sauce

  • You think i'm going to leave it as it is? No no no i'm going to make an amazing sauce for drenching the pork belly steaks! Start by heating up a stainless steel pan. You can use your indoor kitchen ofcourse because you have plenty of time to leave the smoker alone.
  • Add a 250 ml of ketchup.
  • Add 80 ml of apple cider vinegar.
  • Add 1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce.
  • Add ½ tbsp of black pepper.
  • Add 1 tbsp of PitmasterX’s Classic BBQ rub
  • Add 1 tbsp of honey
  • Add 3 tbsp of sugar


  • Once you have a beautifull crispy smoked crust on your pork belly steaks you can take them off and set them in a aluminium tray and cover them with that amazing sauce you've just created.
  • Cover them with some aluminium foil or tin foil and lock them inside of the tray.
  • Place it back on the smoker for around 10 minutes untill they are done!
