The freezer keeper warned me we were "low" on bacon. Store had some nice bellies in the display.
cured and added moderate black pepper and 3 extra days with maple slurple. Also, as always, squared it off before slicing for a batch of "cubes" for pork belly tacos.
7lbs net, not counting cubes. all in suck bags and froze

That's some great looking bacon! I've never come across a belly with layers of fat and meat like that here
