My first CB turned out so well that wife requested some more I also picked up a small belly from the farmers market a couple of weeks ago. Both were cured with TQ for about 8 days(maybe 9?) Rinsed off and soaked for a couple of hours. I fried up a bit of each....they were kinda salty. Let 'em sit in the fridge for awhile....then gave 'em a quick rub down with some local maple syrup....and into the smoker with some apple and hickory wood. The small chunks you see on the tray are pork bones we get from the store. I smoke them and use them in beans or soup. There is also a tray of almonds ready for the smoker.
