Fish, I'm in the middle of a belly bacon project right now, but after seeing your post, I'm definitely putting a BBB project on my short list. Thank you for posting and congrats on the way things turned out!
First ever Buckboard Bacon, but definately not the last! Qview Heavy! - Page 2

Thanks Todd! I think it may have been beginners luck cause I did a couple more on Monday that didn't turn out as pretty, but after curing and smoking will still be spectacular, I'm sure. That's one good thing about making it for yourself. It doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to taste good!
As for what's next, I think I am going to try regular belly bacon. MossyMO turned me on to a local company that sells them for $2.00 a pound, so I am going to have to pick some up!
Stay warm! I was in St. Cloud yesterday for training and boy was it cold. We are just as cold here if not colder. (Finally broke down and bought the wife an autostart for the car!)
