Here is my first attempt at some homemade bacon. Thanks to forum members for the help....
I did a sweet and a savory. The pork bellies I got from Whole Foods; couldn't find em' anywhere else, or any larger for that matter.
The Savory had pink salt, Kosher salt, sugar, fresh garlic, cracked black pepper, fresh thyme, bay leaves.
The Sweet had pink salt, Kosher salt, brown sugar, Jack Daniels, Real Maple Syrup.
After 7 days of curing and flipping I smoked the bellies over Apple and Maple wood. Probably went a little too long on the smoke because it started cooking the outside a little.
Came out fantastic, tasted similar to store bought bacon, with a slightly different texture and a tad more pork chop taste to it. It was bursting with flavor and my wife (very picky critic) said it was the best bacon she'd ever had....
