Ok, so i have a successful first run under my belt smoking a couple of racks of ribs...so now i am an expert. right? lol For my next adventure I am in the process of making bacon. 4.8Lbs of very nice looking pork belly.... check. find a cure recipie i like..... check make said cure and apply it to pork belly....check. I took a couple of pics of the belly with the cure on it and already in a ziplock...i wasn't thinking straight and didn't quite start the photo journal before that, so once i get the pics up that is where it will start. For the Cure i am using a recipie called "Sweet Sweet Bacon" which seems to be all over the internet in primarily based on sugar and molasses with minimal parts salt, pepper, and of course, a tsp of insta-cure #1. The cure went on last night (monday) and is destined for the smoker on saturday all things going well that is. Stay tuned for updates and pics... This could be really good or it could be an epic fail. lol.
