Wow, I love making my own bacon at home! This is the picture of my first homemade bacon.

It tastes so good. It doesn't look like it was cut by a professional though. :)

She ordered "you", or she ordered "both of you" a side of pork belly?  Its like the gift that keeps on giving.  Enjoy it, makes me wish i had a smoker and more free time.

She ordered me a slab of bacon to make for her. LOL

After curing I sprinkled the main slab lightly with pepper, one small slab heavily with pepper, and one with pepper and dark brown sugar



I smoked it with pecan until 145*F internal which ended up being about 7 hours @ ~160*F.





We like thick sliced bacon



and there you have it.  Bacon!
