This was my first attempt at curing a pork belly and making Bacon. I cured it for 7 days and smoked @ 200 for about 4 hours till internal temp of 160 degrees. I placed in the fridge over night and sliced today. I do not have a slicer so I cut in half to make the slicing easier. The taste was amazing to say the least. A 29.00 dollar(12 Lb.) pork belly yielded 10 lbs. of sliced bacon and 1.5 lbs. of ends and pieces for beans. I have a pork but curing for Buckboard bacon next weekend. Enjoy!!

very nice. I'd like to try with a wild hog sometime, but often not a lot of fat

I basically went by amazing ribs recipe listed in the ling below( I did not use maple syrup). I adjusted the amount of ingredients for the cure by the weight of my pork belly. For the rest you can refer to my original post.

Is that what it looks like in the raw? Never seen it in Texas when it wasn't wrapped around a jalapeño.
