    Picked up a belly while out shopping at an Amish market a while ago.  Trimmed it up and rubbed it with buckboard bacon mix.  In the fridge it went.

    Also did three 2lb pieces of CB in a mixture of TQ and my rub minus the salt.  No pics though.

    Today they will be going in the smokers, plus a couple of meatloaves.  The belly bacon is in the Bandera now being smoked with a mix of apple and hickory.

    Later today the CB and meatloaves will go in the Brinkmann.  I'll try to remember to take pics then.

    Bellies are looking great!  Temps are fairly easy to keep around 120 now that I put an umbrella up to shade the smoker.  Was getting false high readings from the sun beating down on it.  They've been cold smoking since 7 am.

    Thanks for showing---I await the slicing pics,

    Canadian bacon, sliced. The younger vultures were swarming as I was starting to bag it up and pronounced it delicious.

    The belly bacon was frozen when I sliced it, worked great that way! Cooked up a couple of slices for the vultures to try. The younger one said it was the best bacon he's ever had. The older one wouldn't even try it. When I asked him why his reply was "Because I can". Teenagers! [​IMG][​IMG]
