  • Total Time: 45
  • Yield: 4-6 people 1x


  • 1 lb pork belly, cubed to 1″
  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and sliced in half
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 2 cups Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
  • El Yucateco® Red Habanero Sauce to taste


  1. Preheat your smoker or grill to a higher heat, between 400-425°F for roasting. Make sure your grill has a lid, you’ll be keeping it shut for the remainder of the cook.
  2. Place your seasoned skillet inside the grill to preheat for about 5 minutes, the surface needs to be very hot.
  3. Season your pork belly with the spices. Drizzle the olive oil over the Brussels sprouts and mix to evenly coat them.
  4. Pull out the skillet and add in the pork belly, stirring around for a minute to help them sear. Place the skillet in the over for about 5 minutes, remove, and add the Brussels sprouts. Stir everything gently to create an even layer. Allow the Brussels sprouts and pork belly to roast for about 15 minutes.
  5. Check on the skillet, add in the 1/2 cup of beer. Stir gently to flip the pieces which will help create an even sear. Place the skillet back in the grill for another 10-15 minutes.
  6. After a total of 30 minutes the Brussels should show little resistance when poked with a fork or knife. Top the skillet with the cheese, sprinkling evenly over the entire top. Close the lid of your grill and allow it to melt and bubble up for a few minutes.
  7. Remove the skillet when desired and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Top with El Yucateco® Red Habanero Sauce to taste.


I recommend adding wood chips or wood chunks on the coals for additional wood-fired flavor. Mesquite, Oak, or Pecan would be my top choices.
