    Followed Bearcarvers excellent how to and it has been resting in the fridge with a heavy coating of pepper,onion powder and granular garlic.

    Loaded the amazen with apple and some alder.

    Put the amazen in the dry water pan.

    MES at 100.

    I may run 2 amazen loads.

    Have a great day!!

    Out of the smoker.

    2 amazen runs 9.5 hours smoking time.

     Shut the Mes off after 4 hours.

    Still warm at removal time.

    Thank you.. I am enjoying my new hobby. The Woman likes it too.

     I have lots of time and wonderful new friends here.

     I consider it part of my recovery.  In fact..all the Drs and therapists have said it's great that I am doing this.

    Unlike some others who sit around being pissed about their new disability.

    I also am volunteering a few hours a week at Shepherd Center working on wheelchairs.

      Slicing pics will be up after noon.

      Have a great day!!

    This batch turned out real nice.

    Thanks again to Bear Carver for the step by step.

    Started out with 14 Pound belly.

    Vaced and freezing 9 pounds. Not bad considering it was skin on.

    Did extra smoking time with the MES off. Thanks Chefrob.

    Todays taste test was...way good.

  17. That is some seriously meaty looking Bacon -- did you get that belly from HMart?  I might have to drive down there and spend a bit more on my belly...looks like it'd be a worthwhile trip if yours is an example.

    WOW!  That looks really really good.  I will give bacon a shot this spring and save some for the July / August Ohio tomatos.  How long can bacon last in the freezer?
