7.5 #s pork belly,cut into manageadle pieces & into buckboard cure for 8 days-turned daily- in the meantime used the fat to make cracklins(yumm)used jimbos technique as far as the baste & fan for a few hrs.Smoked at 120'ish for 7 hrs. with hickory-basted with extra sauce for first couple hrs. than went to apple juice.I pretty happy! my first time doing belly-this was the smaller 1/2 I bought,needed 1 under my belt before I play with the other-have done other bacons in the past with great results.kept some out to let others taste test,have plenty food saver bags in the deep freeze.

Where do you find the slabs of pork bellies that are so lean..Most bought bacon is mostly fat..Where do you find a slab that looks so good and lean? Do they come in different sizes..Pork bellys?

thanks all,these bellies came from local mex. meat market-he didn't have on hand so ordered outta Phoenix-Farmer Johns warehouse-I trimmed the main fat cap off them before smokin them,bought 2 pieces 1 was 9lbs( which was this 1) gave me 6.5 lbs. of bacon after smoke.fat went to cracklins and froze some for sausage when needed.The other is 13 lbs. with a smaller fat cap,wheels are spinning on what to do with it.least i know now I made friend that can do good on bellies.they come fresh not frozen which I like also.
