    Decided I needed to make some bacon. This is what 22 lbs of pork bellies look like right after they start the brining process.

    Anticipate some fresh deliciousness on Christmas!

      I see 6 packages as in 3 bellies cut in 1/2. Or maybe it is 2 bellies cut in 1/3. I have an 11 lb one in the cure.

        6 packages. 1/2 belly in each. Had an 8 pounder, 7.5 pounder, and 12 pounder. 12 pounder is thick and will need 7 days in the cure according to Dr. Blonder’s calculator.

          Phase 2. Two bellies going on today while the thicker belly has two more days to cure.

            Done. Will say my official taste test demonstrated deliciousness.

                Received a new Lem slicer for Christmas. Used that to slice up the bacon. Now ready for distribution to those that have been nice!
