    Yep. Purchase charcuterie. The book. Search old threads with bacon "all this bacon talk". Or I can PM you suggestions, lessons learned, etc. decide if you plan to cold smoke or ht smoke. Most prefer cold smoke. If want that look into a cold smoke generator. Most use Amaze N Smoker.

  • I have the amaze n smoker as chubbs said above (so nice he posted twice). I use traeger apple pellets. It wa like $40 and works like a champ. 12-14 hours of continuous smoke with no heat. Lots of good bacon info on here and we'll all be glad to help when you are ready.

    I'm in the same camp with Chubbs and CT. Get the book and then ask away, we're all here to help. Good luck.

    Nothin better than home made bacon.  Besides the bacon, this book guides through all kinds of amazing home made meat treats, like Corned Beef, Pastrami, Canadian Bacon, well you get the idea.
