We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Bacon from pork belly?

Hey everyone, it's been a while since I've been on the forum. Hope everything's going well.

Last night I watched the episode of Good Eats where AB makes bacon from pork belly. He brines it, dries it with a fan and cold smokes it for 6 hours.

Is there a way to do this in the Egg without setting up a cold-smoking device? I'm thiking of trying this and doing it indirect over a very low temp, maybe with ice in the drip pan.

Has anyone tried this?

I know of a coupe of local Asian/Lation markets that have pork belly (also, head-on shrimp, whole red snapper, cheap skirt steak and other goodies!)
