    There Is A Santa Claus ~ And His Sleigh Is Full Of Pork Belly

    In the high lonesome, pork bellies have been scarcer than hens teeth most of the year. The last one I bought was 6 months ago. I belong to a group of friends that often do group purchases... everything from sweet corn to smoking woods, spices and other mail order things to save on shipping...

    Cowboy Bacon ~ 12 and 12

    In my neck of the woods pork bellies are very hard to find so I picked up a Prime brisket from Sam's Club and cured the flat. My ratios were 1.7% salt, 1% sugar and 0.25% Cure #1.

    Dry Cured & Smoked Steelhead Trout

    Although there is nothing I enjoy more than catching and smoking my own fresh caught trout, skin-on steelhead is my favorite store bought species. My Sam's Club carries it and it's an excellent quality. Steelhead has about the perfect fat content, and the fillets are very even on thickness...
