Default Bacon....bacon....bacon....

I'm on the bacon bandwagon and am kicking myself for not getting on sooner. This is the second attempt for me. Got a whole pork belly from the local Asian market...and quickly found out they sell whole ones with the ribs still attached. No problem....treated them as a chefs snack. Trimmed out nicely and put in the cure for 4 days. Quick wash off and then into the fridge to get happy.

Pulled them out when they were ready, glazed with maple syrup and dusted with black pepper. Into the smoke for a couple hours until they looked good. Let them cool, then sliced (by hand which sucks....) and started eatin'. Man....this stuff is so much better than store bought crap.....

I would love to get a hold of a slab like you have there without taking out a loan. I would Not remove the spare ribs.

Try this the next time:
Remove the membrane from the ribs.
Remove each bone from the meat.
You will end up with more lean meat on the bacon.

Another nice result! I've got to get to that market. Was in Linwood last weekend and didn't have the time.
