Preparation

  1. Trim skin off tenderloins and then butterfly tenderloins so they can be flattened.
  2. Lay piece of plastic wrap over tenderloin and flatten with blunt meat mallet; then set aside.
  3. Lay pork bellies skin-side down on cutting board and score in diamond pattern.
  4. Rub inside of each belly with garlic. Mix herbs and then sprinkle approximately 2 Tbsp. herb mixture on belly along with 2 Tbsp. Belly Rub.
  5. Lay 1 tenderloin on top and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. herb mix and 1 Tbsp. Belly Rub.
  6. Lay 6 strips of prosciutto per porchetta; then roll up as tightly as possible “jelly roll” style.
  7. Secure with butchers twine, brush exterior with olive oil and coat outside of each roll with 2 Tbsp. Belly Rub and ¼ cup herb mix.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  9. Prepare smoker to run at 250°F with hardwood for smoke (preferably cherry or apple).
  10. Remove porchetta from refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking; then place in smoker. Cook for 3 to 3½ hours, checking occasionally for color and temperature. (If porchetta is getting too dark, lightly cover with foil.)
  11. Cook until internal temperature is 170°F. Remove from oven.
  12. Allow to rest at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Slice in ¾- to 1-inch-thick slices.
  13. May be cooled, then sliced and heated on flat top grill to order, or for a sandwich, topped with a spicy mayo and arugula.
