    Already typed this up once and somehow deleted it so this version will be shorter.

    7 3/4lb pork belly from local butcher. ($20)

    Got the dry cure recipe from Cowgirl's Blog, (Thanks Cowgirl!) Used it on half of the pork belly, an experimental one on the other half.

    Cured 10 days. Used smokepistol / Cherry wood and 12 hrs in smoker @ 70-80 degrees.

    I'm going to use the a-maze-n with cherry on the other half tonight.

    I'll definetly do it again.



    Test after 10 days

    Thanks guys, other half done and in freezer. (another 4 packages)

    A-Maze-N worked great and very easy to use.

     I took some to work for the guys to sample... it went over very well.
