Oil, such as canola oil, hog lard or vegetable oil, for frying
15 pounds pork belly, cut into 1-inch squares
Cajun seasoning, such as Best Stop Cajun Seasoning, for sprinkling
Fill a cast-iron pot halfway with oil and heat over medium heat until the oil reaches 350 degrees F.
Add the pork belly to the oil and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown and the skins begin to float, crack and pop, about 1 hour. Drain on a sheet tray lined with paper towel and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
Again, heat the oil to 350 degrees F and fry a second time, stirring occasionally, until the cracklings are crisp and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain on a sheet tray lined with paper towel. Sprinkle liberally with Cajun seasoning.
Allow to cool slightly and serve.
