Continues to look great so far. Don't you just love this time of year when your smoker can double for a refridgerator overnighticon_mrgreen.gif? Are those regular bacon hooks or did you make something to hang with? Can't quite tell from the pics.

Got it out of the smoker after 11.5 hours. It turned out really good, even the misses likes it. I fryed up a few pieces of both the Canadian and the Buckboard. Im gonna let it it sit in teh fridge for a few days before I slice it and feeze.. I will get some sliced up pics as well in a few days..Thanks for looking..Im gonna trim up the butt halves once Im ready to slice it and use the odd pieces for beans and such.......The Plywood smoker worked like a champ..I did learn one thing..You have to kick up the burner for a second to get the wood to smoking and then crank it back down to just a light flame

Well all things come to an end.....

Bought a slicer from Basspro today. It did good but I think they designed it for cutting strawerries or peanut butter because 50 pounds of bacon was givin it fits. Sliced it and vaccumed packed into 1.5 pounds packs...

I cut the hanging pieces off and packaged those to use for seasoning in beans and such....Hope everyone enjoyed the post.....Snack Sticks and Jerky are coming up shortly

Man - great job on both. I know that was a ton of slicing after going through my bacon project.

I think I'll try having it almost frozen before I slice my next batch. Soaking some CB now.

Thanks for sharing.

Now that is a LOT of bacon. Looks awesome!

points.giffor the effort and the great results.

Now about that slicer. Santa brought me a LEM 7.5" that looks exactly like that. I'll never put it to that kind of test, but should I take it back before I mess it up?

Thanks Dude.... The brand on my slicer is a High Country from Bass Pro..LEM makes a nice product from what I understand so you shoudlnt ahve any issues....

I just finished slicing 15 pounds of beef and 15 pounds of deer for jerky and it did OK just under powered and the slide for the table is too short....But it did the job

By the way....You forgot to add the points!!!!!biggrin.gif
