    That looks absolutely delicious!  Fantastic color.  Is it a standard cure & smoke of pork shoulder?  I just started making bacon (slicing my second batch tonight), and it's been great.  Not sure I can buy store bought anymore.  I'd like to give something like this a shot!

    Thanks for posting Tip!

    Now your should bacon looks fabulous and I also can't wait for the sliced pics too. I should do like butt bacon or should is good too but I haven't tried it with a shoulder yet....What is the recipe for your bacon I'm sure you don't make it from a kit. Like I do

    Well, it ain't a standard cure, It has several ingredients in it ya won't find in a basic bacon cure, I been workin on it fer quite a spell, tryin ta make one like my grandpa's.  It is bout as close as I can get.  There be several good shoulder bacon cures out there an make a fine bacon at that.  I never liked the kits I tried, was to much salt in em fer my likin.

    That looks so freakin' GREAT!

    Thanks for comin' back with the sliced pics.

    I'm also glad to hear I'm not alone. I find Hi Mt Cure to be way too salty.

    I like my simple cure & seasoning much better. You don't know how much of what is in those pre-mixed cures.

    Thanks again,

    Bear
