This pork belly was cured for 7 days and smoked to an internal temp of 155°. Gonna fry some up tonight with some over easy eggs. This is the second time making bacon since I got a pellet smoker last year and my favorite item I like smoking on it. This stuff is the "BOMB".

Looks excellent! Did you slice it by hand, or use a slicer?

I sliced it by hand and used this Forschner/Victorinox chef knife.

I had 26 years of practice as a butcher. That was actually pretty easy. What`s hard, is cutting a full cut boneless round steak with a 12" steak knife 1/2" thick. I used to do that with a steak knife to keep from dirtying up equipment that you had to clean up later.

Don't want to hijack, but round steak is one of the most underrated cuts of meat today. Of course I'm not woke !!

When I started cutting meat(1980), this cut was how most people bought round steak and it was usually with the bone in it. We would have them on sale for 1.19 lb. and it was all 2 people could do to keep the in the counter. It`s not hard to sell dollar bills for fifty cents as we used to say. Now the most popular and profitable way to merchandise the round is to sell the top, bottom and eye of round separately. Most supermarkets don`t even sell full cut bone in round steak and more.
