That looks great. Bacon is on my "must do" list, but I still haven't done it.

We made our own bacon this year and I love it. Yours looks good. You will never go back to store bought bacon now!

Yep I've noticed that as well. Low and slow seems to be the key for cooking it, at leases that is what has given me the best results when frying it up.


@yellowhair - I'm loving the slicer so far! We used it a fair amount butchering weekend and then it got a good workout when we made up this batch of bacon. No regrets so far, runs pretty quiet, easy to clean and has plenty of power.


Thanks for all the comments folks! This was my 3rd batch and I feel like I finally dialed in the cure, saltiness and found the wood (cherry) that I really like.

It's a Cabela's 8.6" commercial-grade meat slicer, I was going to get the 10" but they were completely sold out at Christmas. After using this one, not sure I would have "needed" the 10".

Do you have an issue with the bacon "smearing" on the cutter? I can't get clean cuts on my 10" slicer.

@Teamfour - I haven't had any issues when slicing bacon so far. I did find that putting the belly with the fattier side down so the blade made contact with the meater portion of the belly help a bit but I was able to slice it pretty much any direction I'd like without any issues.

One thing I did do was chill the belly overnight in the fridge before slicing. Are you slicing chilled meat as well?
