Well, it's been on the list for a while now. Picked up a 10.55# belly at Costco yesterday. Cut it into 1/3's, got 2 of them in the fridge curing for bacon. Put the other piece on the UDS today. Here's how it looks after 2 hours. Cooking at 325*. Hope it comes out as good as others I have seen here.

My Costco has just recently been keeping them on hand. This is the 1st one I've picked up from them. They have also had Prime packers consistently. I have been enjoying that!!!

Looking mighty good. Mine from last night never got to become tacos but it got vac sealed and is going into the sous vide right now. I did mine on the grate over a half pan with beer in it between 250*-325*. I took some samples last night and all I gotta say is Ooooo Dang!
Purple Taco pics later.

I have a nephew that lives in Mo. Every time he comes to visit, he loads up with goodies from HEB.
Thanks, the belly was awesome!

Mike that looks awesome and I know it was cuz I just had some as well. How did the
mere cat paw in the roasting pan work out? Looked good from here. I too will be doing these again because the "One Who Must Be Obeyed" just went out of her way to tell me how good they were. Perhaps she will keep me on for another season.
