To prepare your Pineapple Pork Belly Burnt ends, begin by cubing your pork belly into 1.5 inch cubes. Next, apply your hot sauce to the outside of the pork belly followed by your BBQ rub. Once this has been done, get your grill set up for cooking around 265F. With your grill up to around 265F, place your pork belly into the grill and begin to smoke them for 2.5 hours or until the outside of the pork belly has a nice bark.
Once the pork belly has been smoking for about 1.5 hours it's time to prepare your pineapple for the smoker. To do this remove the outside along with cutting around the hard core. Next cut your pineapple into large chunks - think two bite pieces. Once the pineapple is sliced, apply a little bit of brown sugar to the outside along with a light coating of bbq rub to the outside for added color and flavour. Next place them onto the grill and begin smoking along side the pork belly.
After 2.5 hours or once bark has formed nicely, remove the pork belly burnt ends and the pineapple from the grill and place them into a foil pan to begin braising. In your foil pan add in your remaining brown sugar, butter, bbq sauce, and a little bit more of your hot sauce. Mix everything around then cover with foil and place back on to the grill and continue to cook for about 1.5 hours longer or until the pork belly burnt ends are fully tender.
After about 4 hours of total cooking time it's a good idea to check for doneness by probing the pork belly. If your thermometer slides in without much resistance than your pork belly burnt ends are done cooking.. At this point remove the foil, stir everything around one last time and continue to cook uncovered for about 5-7 minutes to allow some of the sauce to set up on the outside of the meat. After that's done, remove them from the grill and serve.
