That's what I've been waiting for!

Yours looks good for BLTs too.

Mine was too meaty for BLTs---not enough fat. Great with eggs, but a little chewy for in a BLT.

Thanks for showing some beautiful stuff,

Bear

Dang Rob that is looking flippin fantastic


I wish you would tell us what kind of slicer you are really using cause no one can slice that good


So how about a breakdown on the whole process - maybe I need to rethink the belly thing this looks really good

LOL......i almost busted out with the berkel but i'm still too lazy.

the process simple.....the only thing i do different than what i see others doing, is butterfly the butts after i remove the bone. that way i get a nice flat piece to work with. i am currently using high mountain cure but i am going to start to use TQ when i get some so i can play with flavors a little. i'm not into maple or real sweet stuff so i will be leaning towards the savory and spicy.  remember, i am still new to this curring meat, have never made sausages (other than chorizo) and i still haven't been able to do bellies since butts are so much cheeper..........i'm still living off $.99 butts that i have in the freezer. i am a real fan of capicola and i am doomed if i can come up with a good one of those.

Nice job Rob!  99 cent butts is a great deal!  Never thought about using butts for bacon, I might have to try  that.

LOL---We had BLTs again last night. I made an extra slice, and put it on my plate, instead of in my sammie. Mrs Bear said, "What's that one for ?"

I laughed, "Dessert !"
