Oh no they lost another customer

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 

Here is my first try at making bacon. First off i want to thank the guys who help me get started with this bacon "THANKS".

I picked up 24lbs of bellies and decided to do only half  just incase. IMG_20111223_114635.jpg

First I mix up some of pops wet cure. Put bellies in for 10 days in the fridge.IMG_20111223_114852.jpg


After 10 days I rinsed them off and soaked for an hour, than tested them, everything seemed ok.DSC09578.JPG


Put back in fridge till next day. Than put in smoker for about 9 hrs.DSC09581.JPG


Back in fridge for day and a half, sliced up ready to vacuum seal and put in freezer. First pic is about 1/3 of what I did a little short with the meat. It was the first piece I slice and was disappointed, but the other 2/3 looked great.DSC09582.JPGDSC09583.JPG



Can you guess whats for dinner.

I guess I won't be buying bacon any more.

It looks great…..Pops recipe is so simple and a fantastic way for anyone to get started making their own bacon……Even I have tried started making my own bacon …….. Again, Great looking bacon!!!!  Did you only use Pops recipe or did you add anything to it ?
