    well I washed all the cure off this morning and got things ready to put in the smokehouse tomorrow. I seasoned one slab up with black pepper and did another with honey and brown sugar. I left 2 slabs plain. I'm gonna smoke em up tomorrow. hopefully everything goes as planned. I'm going to cook it low as possible, but with louisiana summer heat that may be difficult. I'll post some view throughout the process.

    Good luck and I'll look forward to the Qview!! While I'm up at camp I'm gonna see about rigging a sprinkler head on top of the metal roof of the smoke house to try to cool it down a bit

    thanks guys, Im in the process of trying to semi freeze it for slicing. It came out really good but with the cold smoking, its still soft and flimsy which makes it a little tough to slice. So hopefully in an hour or so it'll be firmed up enough to slice.

    here it is in the freezer. Soon as it gets firm, I'm gonna slice it up.

    WOWIs about all I can say with this thread there Warren. I just made some bacon but it doesn't look like this bacon. I used some honey and browns sugar on mine. I have been liking a little sweet with my pork lately. I really like your smokehouse too. Where is your fire box??? Is it in the back of the stucture.???

    yea, its that barrel you see in the background. After I cured it, i too added some honey and brown sugar to one slab, and added some CBP to another. The other two I just left plain. you can see the pile on the left is a little bit deeper red, thats the slab that I put the sugar and honey on
