In celebration of International Bacon Day (not really, it just worked out that way) here's some photos of my first foray into bacon. Pork belly 15 days ago. Pop's brine with a bag to weigh it down. Saturday night, pulling it out of the brine. Did a test fry and it tasted like ham. Was nervous. This morning at 8am it went on the Weber with the AMPS loaded up with apple pellets. Smoking! Pouring. Fortunately, I had aluminum foil. Out after 13 hours. It smells and looks like bacon. Sliced. Fried. And eaten. It tastes WAY better than store bacon. Wrapped into serving sizes and in the freezer.
