Description
 
One pound of fresh Pork Belly!

Pork belly is uncured, un-smoked and un-sliced bacon. So bacon is mostly cured (you can buy uncured bacon), smoked and sliced. Typical American bacon is cured with salt and also smoked. ... Once you brine or cure it, and smoke it, it becomes bacon. Pork belly has juicy fat layers wrapped around the meat. There isn't much meat, but once cooked it becomes tender, similar in texture to a pork loin.
