Just bought a 15lb pork belly from local butcher @ 1.98 lb.  Had him cut it in half kept one half frozen and thawing other half.  Plan on starting this weekend on brining process and cold smoking 1st of week. Will take pics and keep all updated.

You either have nitrites in the cure solution or you don't.  There is a difference between preparing green bacon with brine (salt and water) and curing green bacon with nitrites, salt and water.

Don't know how familiar you are with the differences and procedures but use one of the recipes on this site and you should have good results.

Good luck
