Been wanting to give homemade bacon a shot for a while but kept putting it off. Finally got off my azz and gave it a go. Cured a slab of pork belly in Progue Powder, kosher salt, black pepper and sugar for 7 days in a 2 gallon Ziploc. Rinsed it well and let ir dry in the fridge for 2 days before smoking over apple and pecan for 2.5 hours. Sliced it thick on my 40 year old Rival meat slicer. I was scared it would be too salty but man, it's perfect.

You can't buy bacon like that in the store. Looks great.

I think I paid around $4/lb for the belly.

Man, o, man does that look good! Now find some free range eggs, a thick slice of sour dough bread, giant globs of butter & wild grape jelly & you have the Breakfast of Champions!

... & pour a hot cup of black rifle coffee on the side. food
