Servings 8


Red pepper relish

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chopped
  • 1 shallot chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced


  • Slice the pork belly into 1-inch by 8-inch strips. They should be about an inch longer than your buns.
  • In a small bowl, combine the spices. Rub all over the pork belly strips. Place on the Barrel House Cooker grill grate over a large platter or pan. Place in the refrigerator uncovered for 8-12 hours.
  • Heat your smoker to 250-275F degrees. Smoke for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until the temperature of the meat reaches about 200F degrees.
  • Heat the cooker up to about 400F degrees. Continue cooking the pork belly for 10 more minutes to get it nice and crispy.
  • Serve on a hot dog bun with ketchup, mustard and red pepper relish.

Red Pepper Relish

  • Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir in the peppers, shallot and garlic.


If you want to make these in advance and bring them to a tailgate party, smoke them until they reach 200 degrees. Let them cool and refrigerate them. When it's time to party, heat the grill to high and crisp up the pork belly hot dogs for about 10 minutes over direct heat.
