    Looks great.

    More info on the curing or smoking?

    Well, nothing special about the curing process, Cure #1, brown sugar and salt, rubbed in, put into individual zip loc bags for 8 days, then smoked in two Bradleys, one using an AMZNTS for around 7 hours or until they have a nice mahogany color to them. Sliced up on my $150 dollar 30 year old Hobart slicer, vacuum sealed.

    No, don't wait, when I first started I got a 14" granton blade slicing knife. Take your time and you'll wind up with some great looking bacon

    Looks great but why did you have to vacuum seal it? I'm pretty sure I could eat it all before it went bad:). Mmmmmn bacon!!!

    Now DATS some good lookin' bacon!!!!!

    Besides having a top notch Hobart slicer, how'd you get it to slice so nice?  It looks pretty thick.  Did you partially freeze it before slicing?

    Great looking bacon. Your slicer makes everything easy. I know I have one just like it!

    With that slicer you can slice is so thin that you could see through it. Long story but I got mine FREE!
