Here is my first try at making bacon. First off i want to thank the guys who help me get started with this bacon "THANKS". I picked up 24lbs of bellies and decided to do only half just incase. First I mix up some of pops wet cure. Put bellies in for 10 days in the fridge. After 10 days I rinsed them off and soaked for an hour, than tested them, everything seemed ok. Put back in fridge till next day. Than put in smoker for about 9 hrs. Back in fridge for day and a half, sliced up ready to vacuum seal and put in freezer. First pic is about 1/3 of what I did a little short with the meat. It was the first piece I slice and was disappointed, but the other 2/3 looked great. Can you guess whats for dinner. I guess I won't be buying bacon any more.
