My first attempt

post #1 of 15

Rubbed them down with dry rub cure and let it go for seven days. Rinsed dried and been smoking for 5 hours over Apple and cherry I'm going to let it go for about 2 more hours then cool down and wait to slice. Can't wait to give it a try. [IMG][IMG]

First attempt and you did an entire case? Man after my own heart!

7 days may have been a bit short, but looking forward to the end results!

Did you do a fry test sample?

me and a buddy started butchering our own poohs a couple years ago and we decided this year to build a smokehouse and try our hand at bacon so this the bellies from 3 pigs and our jowl as well. We didng test fry and prob should have. We used a cure purchased from local processing supply store slicing today so taste test will happen tonight

Couldn't be happier with the results I will trim them a little to help out when slicing but the taste as far as smoke and saltiness was as good as this first timer could hope for
