I have watched so many people do this and have wanted to try it for a while but bellies have been pretty expensive around here (4.99 per pound). While shopping this weekend CostCo had bellies for 1.99 a pound so I picked up two, About 25 pound in total. I followed Pops Brine and have them all in the fridge for 12 to 15 days. I cannot wait for them to be done. So now the waiting game begins.
