Next time I'll add some powdered milk. My wife said that it was a bit on the salty side. I don't quite think so; maybe it was a little close. The culprit could be the bacon even though I used a low sodium bacon.
P sounds great,, Ya the NFDM will help you out 1/2 - 1 cup per 5lbs is what I use also it may have been crumbly because IT temp,,, I usually take mine to 152-155 and then throw them in a cold water bath to stop the cooking process.
Awesome job on your first attempt!!
