Any thoughts?

Did you use a store bought rub/cure? If not and you are able to get the High Mountain seasoning give that a try. Make sure to follow the instructions to a T. I get lots of flavor from their black pepper seasoning.

I have used a mallet to pound the strips in to uniform thickness. The butcher does a good job getting most of them close but there is always a few that are a bit thicker than I like.
