  • I like all these projects. Can't wait to try my first meat smoke, definitely a meat slicer would be the way to go!

  • Double - the BEST part of this cook is that your Kid will never forget how he helped Dad, and he has a picture to prove it! Times like that are simply priceless and last a lifetime! :)

    Only problem was whenever we checked the smoke he wanted to grab the hose and put the fire out!

    Looks good @Double! And thanks for the hint on Bogs Boots!

    The only reccommendation I have (and I am admittedly a novice) is to square off the bellies prior to the cure trying to get as uniform as possible. This will become important when you go to slice it. Especially if slicing by hand. You can use the scraps to make lardons. I sliced mine by hand and once you get down to the last inch or so of the slab it becomes increasingly difficult to slice. I cubed this up as well and made lardons. I pulled a Foodsaver pack of lardons out last night and pan fried them up to go on top of a cobb salad. Delicious!

    Looks good! I love getting the little guys involved, I had my cousins 13 year old helping me on superbowl sunday, his mom told me he has been talking about the egg all week and hopes to do it again this weekend!

    @Chubbs Another thing you can do is square it off after it's cured and smoked, cube up the trimmings and sprinkle with brown sugar in a disposable alum. pan, put back on the egg @ 250 for a couple of hours for pig candy.
