    I used bearcarvers bacon recipe. 1 tbs of tender quick and 1 tbs of brown sugar per lb. I got the pork belly at costco already sliced into these 6 hunks. Was 5.29 lbs total. I'm thinking that with the increased surface area maybe 9 days might be too long. We shall see.[​IMG]

    What was the price per lb? Cure time is based on thickness rather than surface area.

    Will be watching. [​IMG]
