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.
