Preheat the air fryer to 250° for 5 minutes while you prep the pork.

Rub the spice blend into the meaty side of the pork belly. Salt the skin side.
Cook 20 minutes, increase temperature to 400°. Cook an additional 30-40 minutes to crisp up the skin. Bring the internal temperature to 145°F. Remove from air fryer, and tent and rest 10 minutes.
