I love this recipe!!! No rubbing,flipping,soaking,test frying or much math!!! The bucket I use is from the bakery ...holds one bellie and 2 gallons of cure/brine mix. Here's the essentials... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/108844/bacon-the-easy-way-thanks-pops-with-q-view Here's the latest batch..it is good!!! Have a great day!! Craig Out of the mix and into the MES for twelve hours of apple smoke from the new AMAZEN Pellito!! Out of brine/cure and spiced with garlic,onion and pepper. Now it's out of the smoker!! This time sliced thick...I have a reason... hehehehehe The lower one was first slice..too thick.. Guess what's for lunch here??? Bacon!! yummie!! Later!! The next time I make it this way I will do a step by step with lots of pics..
