Coffee Rub Pork Belly Bites
I think way before I was born Memorial Day was the unofficial start of summer. I remember being 5 or 6 years old getting ready to go to some relative’s home for a big BBQ. I also remember seeing all these Memorial Day mattress sales and I never really thought much about it. Back then, Memorial Day was just the beginning of summer and there were many sales going on. None of which I cared about. I mean what 6-year-old cares about no interest for a full year on furniture?
Flash forward about 14 years later to a scared 20 year old at Ft Knox, Ky. My first night I was awoken to the sounds of a trash can being thrown down the hall and screams of get up…get out of bed. It was my first full day of basic training in the US Army.
I spent almost 10 years in the Army and looking back it was some of the best times in my life. It also made me realize what Memorial Day really stands for… and it is not for great deals on cars, furniture or mattresses. It is about remembering those who have served their country in the greatest possible way and gave their life in that endeavor. So I ask all of you to take a pause at 3:00pm your local time and remember those brave men and women who died serving their country.
Now that I have gotten that off my chest, on to why you came here…coffee rub pork belly bites. I found a great cut of pork belly a few weeks ago and just knew I had to do something good with them. I will admit that I think I outdid myself on these and they turned out amazing. Well, I’ll let you get the judge.
