      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.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
