Finally got around to making savory bacon. Pork belly, garlic, kosher salt, sugar, pink salt, crushed bay leaves, and fresh pepper. I left it curing for two weeks, only because I didn't have time to smoke it.  Smoked with hickory and pecan to 155 degrees.  Pics attached. Came out very nice.

    I have a new brilliant food idea, if bacon is the worlds best food (it is), why not make bacon wrapped bacon.  Brilliant, like Kramers coffee table book about coffee tables.
