    Several of us decided to go together and do a bacon smoke. We ended up getting 3 cases of bellies that in total weigh 170 lbs. Most if not all of it will get cured using Hi Mountain Buckboard Bacon seasoning and cure. The bellies are in the refrigerator right now starting the defrost. They were stuck together well and tomorrow I'll try to get them apart and stack them a little better hopefully split them up between two fridges.

    More to come as we progress

    That's a downright ambitious project you're starting on, Jerry! Good luck and I'm looking forward to the finished product.

    That is some serious belly! Good luck and thanks for keeping us in the loop. How do you like the flavor you get with the Hi Mountain BB seasoning?

    I like it and everybody thats tried it has too. I have a few other cures and may try them but with this much it may just be easier doing it all the same and what we know works.

    Bob wish you lived closer to help with this one it should be fun

    OMG!

    Dry Cure or Brine Cure?

    Take lots of pics of the process and keep us posted.

    It's one thing to do a couple small slabs, but another to undertake this operation.
