so, the bacon got smoked this weekend. i also did some cheese and nuts while at it.

turned out pretty good. i think i need a bigger prob belly next time.



ready to get started with the AMNS







nuts done.....smoked for about 3 or 4 hrs. some EVOO and cajun spices mixed in. turned out pretty good



Bacon done...smoked about 6 hrs. taste pretty good. all went well for a first time......had some BLT last night.

pretty easy process....but time is the important factor. next time, ill prob cure longer, and light both sides of the AMNS....id like a thicker smoke. but, the AMNS worked wonderfully...provided constant smoke, and made it soooo much easier. i used hickory btw. i would recommend that lil booger to anyone who likes to smoke.

I am certainly not a bacon expert, but don't you skin the belly before you smoke it?
