    Default Bacon

    Okay I finally scored some pork bellies and the best thing is that I got 38 pounds for free!!!!!! well kinda all I have to do is give the guy half. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I used a 1 to 1 mix of tinder quick and “sugar in the raw” from what I’ve see it’s 5-7 days per half inch. The thickest of my bellies it only 1” maybe 1 ¼



    I cold smoked the bellies for 10hrs in a 50/50 mixture of apple and peach wood and boy o’ boy that peach wood smells so damn sweet. I really don’t think I’ll ever buy bacon again
