That's beautiful Richie! Those slices made my mouth water..... That's a whole meal. I guess you'll have to share with your bride....LOL

 

If it only tastes half as good as it looks, well, you better package it up quick so you'll have some later! ROFLAMO!

 

Damn That is Pretty!

Looks great Richie!!! I gotta start eating some of the bacon in my freezer so I can make more haha

Looks great Richie! The last bacon I made was our best ever. The longer rest after the cure before the smoke, and the longer rest after smoking is what I attribute it too. Good stuff!

Richie, that bacon looks delicious.    I am going to give bacon a try pretty soon, but it will be pork butt bacon since I don't want to spend the money on a pork belly and screw it up on the first try.:icon_smile:
