I can't believe that I haven't figured out that I could fit more belly on the smoker if I used a rib rack. Thanks for the tip.

That is some of the best looking bacon I've seen, looks meaty and delicious!

Thanks guys! That new slicer made short work of processing things once the cure and smoke was over.

buttburner - these were indeed hot smoked, this was my 3rd attempt and best so far.


Spotted Cow for homemade bacon? We have a deal!


Ron - here is the recipe for the basic dry cure that I use:

1 pound/450 grams of pickling salt
8 ounces/225 grams of granulated sugar
2.4 ounces/68 grams of pink salt (Prague Powder #1)

Basically mix everything together, you want to make sure the ingredients are well distributed, I store mine in a mason jar in a dark corner of my cabinet. For these slabs of belly I use 1 tablespoon of cure per pound of meat. Once the cure is on I add my other seasonings/spices and place in a gallon zip lock bag. These were cured for 7 days (flipping each day) and on the evening of the 7th day we rinsed them off and stuck them back in the fridge overnight to rest and form the pellicle.

We had my WSM rolling between 190 and 200 degrees for a majority of the smoke, at the end I bumped it up to 225 to reach my target of 150 degrees internal temp on the belly. If it wasn't a week night I would have just let it rock at 200 until we got there. I think they were on the smoker close to 4 hours.

Hope that helps...if not give me a holler.


code3 - these bellies were outstanding, I almost wish I would have saved a little more than I did, the rest went to breakfast sausage and brats.

Wrap up and send to me after putting a fat free sticker on the package. That way I can stick to my diet and not upset the wife.

Do you notice that it cooks a little different than the store bought stuff? I made some and it seems to go from almost done to burnt real fast, just wondering.
