Thanks 2beez, how's the kiddos?
Okiehtr, making bacon is easy. Look in the history in this area. I wrote up a tutorial called 2018 making bacon thread or something like that.
Here's a hint learned since I wrote that. Dont use aromatic spices during the cure process. Just use the cure, salt, and sugars. You can add them in the smoking process. It turns out a much better product.
