Andy, your post could not have been more timely! First, gotta say that those bellies look mouth-watering. Second, I struggled finding bellies and went to a local Mexican market/butcher where he gets whole pigs every Thursday. He'll have them ready for me today at 1p. I've ordered two.

Gonna try Alton Brown's cure recipe.

Andy, Great Q-view too.

Thanks all that have responded.

Here is a link to a previous post.
This post was from the first time I tried to make bacon. If you need more info on this, pm me and i can create another post. If you make paprika bacon DO NOT SOAK belly in water to rid the salt (you will have to boil it)

Dry cure is the plan (1kg belly= 100grams of salt and 50 grams of sugar, no nitrates).
