Look for my thread " making bacon ", It was my first try at bacon. My belly produced about 2/3 cup of liquid and it was about a 6 pounder. My UDS holds 180* no problem. Start with about 6 lit coals and watch closely. I usually have only the valve open about half way. I paid $1.99 per pound from local grocer, he had to order it in as usual, I live in the sticks.
