This is one of my all time favorites, I might reclassify it as comfort food.   I didn't have any fruit wood handy so I used mesquite and that played well.

 

The red, white and blue potatoes came from our garden.  Perfect for July. 

 

I started with a heavy dose of Himalayan salt and fresh cracked pepper.   The belly was put on the top rack once the primo hit 350 and the smoke thinned out.  I basted 4 times during the cook and again after I pulled it.  Pulled at an IT of 199.  

 

Gave the potatoes a course chop and layed them on a bed of chopped yellow onion with salt and pepper plus some fresh rosemary.   I roasted them under the belly to catch all of the goodness.

I serve the pork in a bowl over a bunch of those potatoes.   A food coma meal!

Delicious! It's kind of a secret.  Once the secret is out,  the price will go up.  What did you baste it with?  


Yep, just like chicken wings, at one time they were literally trash and now they command a premium price.

 

Basted with 4 parts maple syrup, 2 parts soy sauce(or Braggs Liquid Aminos) and 1 part apple cider vinegar.

I used Braggs on this run and it was great, I have also used soy sauce and is a safe bet.

Ya,  that is the sauce I used also from your post.  If something is delicious, why use anything else?
