Default Bacon on BGE

Here is my first go at Bacon on the BGE. I got it as a gift from my amazing girlfriend.

I started with 10lbs of fresh pork bellies

I rubbed in a mixture:
2 part kosher salt and
1 part brilliant yellow sugar.

Then i gave it a good massage for a few minutes.

Packed it in big ziplock bags and put it in the fridge.

I let one section sit in there for 5 days. I took it out today. I washed it off in luke warm running water for a few minutes. Then i dried it with paper towel and it is sitting in the fridge.

I am going to leave it in there until my brisket is done and then smoke it with apple chips.As for the rest of it...I am going to do the 3 different cuts differently. I am going to wait a couple more days to take the other ones out of the bags. And i am going to let them hang dry in the fridge for different times (8 hrs and 16 hrs) respectively.

I will let you know what one is best, in my opinion.
