      Well, it looks like bacon, it probably smells like bacon, but does it taste like bacon?

          Troutman Looked up Jack Handey to make sure I knew what you were saying. Really good stuff!

        Hard for me to judge from here... you're going to have to send a sample to Houston

            Omg...it wasn’t. I’ve been stalking the Pork Belly

          It looks good, but the only thing that matters is how it tastes to you and yours.

            Looks good. I did my first one a couple of weeks ago and it turned out excellent.

              AngieAng glad to SEE your thoughts!

              What cure did you use to make your bacon, before smoking it? Always in search of new bacon recipes, as I have a full pork belly in the freezer begging for me to do something with it...

                I used Prague Powder #1Curing Salt, brown sugar , and Kosher Salt, rubbed it in ...let set in frig for 7 days(since it was a small belly). Flip everyday. Rinse, pat dry , and back in frig overnight uncovered

              Looks good! Slicing is my least favorite part.

              JCGrill use that as an excuse to get you one of these - makes slicing easier:
