    The other day I went to get some more bacon fro the freezer and there was none. So we all know what that means. Bacon on the mind. Off to get some bellies and a butt or two. Well it's all cured for 2 weeks an now it's time to smoke it. The one that's all rolled up is a piece of bellie that I rolled up and will slice for alittle Pancetta like just to see how it will workout. It should be great on sandwiches I hope. We will see.

    Now that we are ready for the smoker. Let's get it all hooked up and grab some apple chunks and get smokin.

    So now we are in the smoker and smoking. I have no clue on how to rotate theses photos.

    Maybe the photos are too big and this program won't let it rotate. So maybe lay downwhile you read this thread and they will look right. Now after about 12 hours of smoking we are ready to let the bacon rest and then go to the slicer.

    I hope you have liked my little bacon making and know that I and some of our friends will like it soon enough. So Happy smoking to all of you out there in SMF land.

    Thanks Mark. Now I have a crick in my neck. [​IMG]

    Did you use different seasoning for the Pancetta or just rolled it up?

    From the photo it looks like you are hot smoking the bacon. What temp did you take it too & how hot was the smoker?

    Well all together I sliced 22 lbs bacon was made an sliced. Now Al The smoker never got above 85° and I used a single electric hot plate in my old GOSM smoker. It works really well to for cold smoking. I do have some sliced pictures so here you go.

    Your bacon[​IMG]
     
    The easiest way to rotate pics is left click them on your computer to highlight the pic, Then right click and select rotate clockwise or  rotate counter clockwise, which ever direction you need to rotate.

    Another option is to left click then right click scroll down to open with and select windows picture gallery. this will open the picture up in another window. At the bottom of the window you will see a couple curved arrows click the one for direction you need to rotate.
