I was at Costco and by mistake, I picked up a lot of sliced pork belly thinking it was bacon. I want to cure it into bacon. Has anyone cured sliced pork belly? Does anyone have a good recipe? Any advice would be great.

I would use a Brine Cure like Pops... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/110799/pops6927s-wet-curing-brine Handling the belly and trying to use a Dry Cure would be difficult. Soak overnight, drain well and pat the slices dry. Add some Cold (ambient) smoke and you will have what you thought you were buying...JJ
