    A friend of mine wants me to try making Beef Bacon.

    Would I just get a Beef plate/Belly and cure it like I would a pork belly then smoke it?

    What cuts would you recommend?

    I saw that someone used boneless short ribs.

    I lean towards dry brining my bacon, but would wet brining be better for beef bacon?

    I am leaning towards a hickory/pecan mix.  Any other suggestions?

    Thanks
