In celebration of International Bacon Day (not really, it just worked out that way) here's some photos of my first foray into bacon.
Pork belly 15 days ago.
Pop's brine with a bag to weigh it down.
Saturday night, pulling it out of the brine. Did a test fry and it tasted like ham. Was nervous.
This morning at 8am it went on the Weber with the AMPS loaded up with apple pellets.
Pouring. Fortunately, I had aluminum foil.
Out after 13 hours.
It smells and looks like bacon.
And eaten. It tastes WAY better than store bacon.
Wrapped into serving sizes and in the freezer.
