    Well I fianally got to try the bacon. Turned out really good, Buckboard cure for 10 days, soaked in fresh water for 2 hours. Smoked at 225 for around 5 1/2 hours. Temp.140. I want to thank everyone for all the help with this. It was my first time doing bacon and I'm so proud at how it turned out. A REALLY BIG thank you to Debi, for giving me the extra push to try it.[​IMG]

    Thanks Debi, so many people told me "heck it took you 6 hours I could just go to the store in 5 minutes. Yea so. But I MADE IT MYSELF!! People tend to forget that there weren't always stores around. I know what went into my bacon, do they. Plus I just made around 8lbs, of the best bacon for only 9.00 bucks, and I had a damn good time doing it.
