Smoked Pork Belly Buns

Barbecue Pork Belly Buns

A couple weeks ago I basked in a personal Texas-style pork belly achievement. I also mentioned that pork belly rarely stands out to me in smoke joints due to its lackluster flavor when compared to the super beefy beef ribs and briskets that serve as better ordering options. The real attraction to the pork belly for me is its immense amount of soft, luscious fat that gives it a texture unlike any other smoked meat. So in thinking of a way to best feature smoked pork belly's top trait while enhancing its overall flavor, I came up with these smoked belly buns, which just so happen would make for an excellent New Year's celebration treat.

There are some exceptions to my leftover aversion though, with pulled pork being one of those outliers. I love leftover pulled pork so much that I tend to smoke twice as many pork butts as I need at any given time so I can divvy up the second one into small servings and freeze for later use. One reason pulled pork breaks from leftover norms is due to its versatility—the options beyond a bun and slaw are almost limitless. While I'm sure you need no proof to deem that statement true, I present to you these pulled pork nachos as an exhibit anyways.
