Default On the topic of bacon

Lots of posts about bacon. This is actually my second run at bacon.

First bacon was delicious but I did not post here about it.. I have a few crappy cell pics that are not worth posting. It was the Maple Cured bacon from Charcuterie.

Second belly in the cure as I post.

5lb Pork Belly... I removed the rind first this time

1/4 Cup Mortons Kosher
2 tsp Pink Salt
1/4 C Light Brown Sugar
1tsp garlic powder
1 tsp whole black peppercorns
1 Bay leaf chopped
1/4 tsp red pepper
1/4 c maple syrup
about 8 allspice berries

The additional seasoning is probably very light but I am trying to work up a good recipe like working up a good rifle load... Rind was removed to allow a little more smoke into the belly but hopefully keeping the same amount of wood used the same...

The cure

(What size are pics are best for this forum... I seem to have problems with Photobucket presets here but not on other forums...)
