    Bob - excellent looking q-vue as always!!! Was that the bacon you made a little while ago, and this is for your friend? If so, they're in for a huge treat!!! [​IMG]

    Nice, very nice!

    I have 20 lbs of pork loin in Hi Mountain Buckboard Bacon brine right now. When that project is finished I will be doing some pork belly bacon. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours appears to be!

    Cheers!

    Would you be willing to share the recipe and how you did it. I have a pork belly in the freezer just waiting for its moment of glory in my smoker.

    Thanks for the added info, Bob!

    I am a firm customer of Hi Mountain now. Great stuff! Gonna try a few experiments with my smoke on Sunday. We'll see what happens. And of course there will be real Vermont Maple Syrup involved.

    Cheers!
