Started this pork belly last Friday in the cure and spices. 4 days in the fridge and it's ready for the smoker. With the weather I had to cook in the oven and with the rolling blackouts it took most if the evening to get it to 160 degrees.
All done and cooling on the counter. I'll wrap in plastic wrap once cool then back in the fridge and slicing tomorrow.

Oven is better than nothing! I'd eat that. Looks good.

What kinda spices you got on there? I usually just use cracked pepper and brown sugar in the cure.

Go to here
www.amazingribs.com

Once on site search for bacon recipe and also read the section about curing meats very informative for your safety.

Curing salt is called Prage Powder #1 DO NOT SUBITUITE!! Got mine on Amazon.

Recipe for the one I made is simple and based on piece of pork belly approx. 3 lbs. Below is for 3lbs of pork belly.
1. 3/4 cup of distilled or boiled water
2. 6.5 tablespoons brown sugar
3. 6.5 tablespoons Morton's kosher salt (DO NOT use table salt)
4. 4.5 tablespoons course black pepper
5. 1 teaspoon Prague Powder #1. Read section for curing meats they have a calculator for measuring pork belly LxWxH. One teaspoon is close but not always.
6. Has to cure in fridge for 3-5 days sealed in plastic bag flipping each day.

Thanks for the recipe. That's pretty much what I use. Substituted maple syrup for brown sugar one time but like the brown sugar better.

I miss that. You go into the store here and ask for pork belly, they are looking around and calling 911, 'cause you're crazy or something!!!
