Default Got Pork Belly- Bacon Help Please?

So I went with a friend to pick up a hog he had butchered this morning and he gave me the pork belly. I would like to make some bacon and cold smoke it. I went on a site that said to brine it in a salt and sugar solution with another chemical or two but I don't have those chemicals now. What is my best options to do this? Pretty much I have pork belly in the fridge that I don't want to waste. Any ides's and help?

Are you familar with the Fox Fire books. My mother had a set that went from salting pork to making shine. Dont know where to locate them but they may give you an idea of what you want to do. There are only 4 in the set but were very interesting reading.
