Pork Belly Burnt Ends

There isn't a much better bite in BBQ than Pork Belly Burnt Ends. Some people call them meat candy and if you ever tried them you would understand why. Sweet and buttery bites that melt in your mouth! You can also make these in the oven, I'll give some pointers for that in the notes section!

Notes

You can use bacon grease, mustard, mayo, or oil of your choice for a binder.  Don';t cut these smaller than 1" as they will shrink some while cooking and you don't want them to dry out.  These can def be made in the oven!  Same process,  same time and temps.  Just make sure to do initial 2-3 hrs on wire rack on a baking sheet to collect drippings.  I would prob line it with foil to make cleanup easier.
