    I've been in KY at my fish camp for about 2 weeks and my internet connection there lets me enjoy the forum but not fast enough to upload my pics so I'm doin a little catchin up. I made Buckboard bacon for Christmas presents this year. I seasoned them with garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper... and TQ for the cure.

    These sat in the fridge for about 16 days.... into the sink to soak with a couple of water changes for about 4 hours..... then I let them sit in the fridge for another 48 hours.

    Then into the smoker.......

    I kept the smoker between 140 and 180 with most of the smoke around 165 with some hickory... sat in there for about 6 or 7 hours.... let it get away from me a little. Was going to pull them at 140 - 145 but they came out just a little over 150.

    These things always turn out sooooo tasteeee. I love em. I kept one... gave my neighbor one.... slicing one for my Father in law and I think maybe I ate one while sleep walkin... somehow.... one is missing.

    Now thats some good looking bacon but I wish I could have seen some of it sliced but I know it looks good. Now I have done a couple of them and I also like to leave it longer then it says to cause it seems to have a deeper more intence flavor.

    I do now. This is one Butt. 2 packs of really nice slices... one pack of scrappy slices.. and a pack of pieces and bits. Had some fried up this evening in the bottom of a bowl of smoked chicken and dumplins... awesome.
