Did this a few weeks ago, just never got around to posting. Picked up a case of bellies (50lbs). 3/4 of the case went into the freezer. So this will be a 12lbs test run. Went with Cowgirl's Smokehouse Bacon (if Jeanie made it..it's got to be good, right!!) and a couple of slabs I just threw together for comparison. In the cure and spices. Lightly smoked w/ hickory for 4 hours....probably should have smoked longer but didn't want to over do it on my first try. (in the same order) Smokehouse Bacon being sliced Needs more smoke but darn good stuff! Got more to do, but gotta do some more work on the cold smoker setup. Thanks for lookin...thanks for the recipe Jeanie!!
