Fully submerge the pork belly in a pot of water, add the salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the pork belly is flaky and tender, 3 to 4 hours. Turn off the heat and drain.

Heat peanut oil in a fryer or large pot to 350 degrees F. Gently place handfuls of the rendered pork belly into the fryer until golden crispiness, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate or bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Mix the mayonnaise and maple syrup in a bowl. Spread a hefty portion onto the bottom baguette halves, followed by a little squirt of the hot sauce. Top with a handful of chopped lettuce, a couple slices of dill pickles and the fried pork belly. Finish with another heavy drizzle of the mayonnaise-maple mixture. Enjoy!
