Sounds like you have it covered. How are you planning on smoking it? Hot or cold smoke?

Pops brine makes it real easy. If this is your first bacon I would cold smoke it.

Pop's brine is great!  My only suggestion is that, if you add any additional spices (I add garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper), give it a good stir every few days.  Otherwise the pieces on the bottom get more seasoning than the ones on the top.  Good Luck!
