I must be lucky the last Belly had some smaller bones.I will use these in a pot of Beans when I smoke it.Glad to see you have a good seat.

Yeah, properly trimmed belly should not have any bones.

Just curious about your salt ratio?  My sweet spot seems to be about 1/3 cup + 1 Tablespoon per 1 gallon of water.
