I've never done bacon...yet....but was always under the impression that you needed sodium nitrite ( or morton's tenderquick, Cure #1, pink salt etc) in order to "cure" bacon or any other meat. Not sure if just salt will "properly" cure it. When I make smoked sausage, I always add "pink salt" especially since i'm smoking at lower temps. just saying......

GOSM smoker (gas)
Masterbuilt (electric)
Weber Kettle
Weber Gasser (2)
Weber WSM

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me then a frontal lobotomy
