G'day All!

Here are some pictures from my "Porktastic Adventures in Bacon Making".   (Sorry for the giant pics...can't resize on the fly, it seems)

Highlights:  I "built" a cold smoker, I didn't kill myself with botulism and I can now make all the bacon I can eat.  Mwahahaha!

Lowlights:  This batch was very salty.

The full story is detailed over 3 blog posts found here:

Cured them and put them in the fridge for 7 days:





Rinsed them off and put them in my FrankenTraeger:





Sliced them up and fried me up some bacon!
