    looks great. how did you do the olives?

    i prefer cold smoking the bacon too, but it takes a loooooong time to pick up decent color, i think.

  • Olives smoke for about 1/2 hour, then let cool and stuff with cheese. The bacon smokes for about 2 hours.
    The can puts out alot of smoke. I cured the bacon with Mortons quick cure, kosher salt , brown sugar, maple syrup, herbs d provence and bay leaves. After a Week of curing in the fridge I rinsed the bellies in cold water. next they dryed out in the fridge on racks for 2 days. then cold smoked for about 2 hours with apple wood. Oh then freeze before you slice it works better for me. Use a Real slicer the cheap ones do not work,
