My try at Buckboard Bacon

Thanks to Thirdeye, Fidel, & Lil Chef, I am on my way to the promised land of Buckboard Bacon. A little nervous as this is my first time.
Worth mentioning is that Crimsongator and Hungry Man were of absolutely no help, with Carwash Mike only slightly better. :P
One might think I could figure it out on my own, even with my obvious limited capability. I figured incorporating the help of no less than a half dozen Egghead friends couldnt hurt.
Thanks Everyone!

    Good for you Ron! Your only regret is going to be that you haven't started doing this sooner! B)

    Go for it Man! I did and it is some of the best bacon I have ever had. Pretty much followed the High Mountain instructions plus what I learned off the chat board. I did an 8 hour soak, changing water ever 2 hours. Slight salt taste but no where near what it is with commercial bacon.
    I posted a couple of pics of my finished product.
    Best of luck.
