    This is my first attempt at bacon. Came out tasty. I cured for seven days and dried it in the fridge for 24 hrs and then cold smoked for 8 hours. Need to tweek my cure. I used a dry cure method in which i rubbed in the cure put it in a ziplock bag and flipped it every other day. Off to get another pork belly and start again this was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone for the advice and info on how to do this.

    Now you will have plenty of really good bacon in your future. Once you start making it yourself you wont buy any more cheap yucky bacon.
