Pork belly roll

Contains images which may be disturbing to vegans.
I'm not really in the mood to type a long story, but this took a fair bit of time to prepare. It was worth it.

That looks delicious!
What did you stuff it with?

Just herbs and spices - garlic, mixed herbs, salt, pepper, chilli, turmeric and a bit of olive oil. The key is to get one that has the skin unscored. Remove the skin, spice away, roll the meat up and wrap in the skin. I cooked it at the lowest heat in the oven for about 4 hours, then finished on the braai.

Yup, that is the business. Very nicely done :thumbs:

Pork belly on the Weber is my specialty.

The belly looks much better than the last one I purchased at the butchery. Yours have much more meat and less fat.
I heard a pork neck is a better buy if I want more meat. Any comments?

De-boned pork neck has less lard than the belly and is wonderful on the braai grill and in the Weber. Should be good in the oven as well.
