Default bacon!

OK. Two pork bellies, trimmed out for bacon and pancetta. I did half of one belly using Thirdeye's recipe, the other half as pancetta, and the other pork belly I did in 3 parts but all using Charcuterie's Maple Syrup cure. All done making up the cure, rubbing, curing, soaking, pellicleizing - today was smoking day! Cold, rainy 40 degree day in Seattle. I used a mix of mesquite and cherry lump (the latter I made myself). Sure made my driveway smell good!

I pulled them off and removed the skin. Here's a shot of the just-smoked skinned pieces cooling out, enjoy: - seattlepitboss
