    After looking and reading about all this bacon I just had to give it a try.

    IF it is half as good as everyone says it is i'm going to be in trouble. I;m going to need another part time job just to keep up this smoking habit.BUT it sure is fun and the food is tasty.

    I cant wait to try out the bacon in about a week.

    Your right about the waiting. I thought waiting for ribs to get done was bad. LOL

    Getting a little bit closer. 10 days in the brine, soaked it for a while to reduce the salt. A little too salty for me. A few hours in the fridge then a rub down of brown sugar and pepper. Back to the fridge until day light then fire up the AMNPS.   Have I missed anything?

    Ok I finished the Bacon smoking this afternoon. I didnt get a lot of color but the smoke flavor is very noticeable. Needless to say i'm hooked and in search of the next slab.

    Once finished I had almost 8 lbs of bacon.

    I used the 9in. Weston slicer ( northern tool )  to slice it all up. Because it is only a 9in you have to cut the pieces a little smaller than store bought. But is slices like a dream and never slowed down. I'm very happy with it as well, and shorter bacon works well on a BLT.
