I spend more time lurking than posting since my boys are young and require active parenting. But I do a lot of research on here and want to thank you all for sharing your ideas and results which made my bacon a success. I used the cure calculator that was shared on this site by numerous members and that worked wonderfully. My cure was 2tsp salt, 1tsp sugar, 1tsp cure prague's #1, 2Tbsp maple syrup (B grade) to each 3lb slab for 2 weeks. I smoked for 4hrs at 200F and brought it to 150 IT at the end.
Everyone enjoyed it. I enjoyed it daily since I eat Keto style and attempt #2 is underway (Started curing today). Many thanks to you all!!
