Any difference between pork bellies and sides? Iíve always used bellies but they are getting pricey. Gonna grab 10 lbs regardless and give it a whirl, thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the heads up.

So far, when I make bacon, I use the pork loin. But I have seen a couple of good recipes for side pork cooked in the smoker. Like 12 to 18 hours.

Gonna have to try it.

Saw the deal in the Safeway flyer this week and then forgot about it.

Time to lay down some dry cure bacon.

Thanks for the reminder

How do the bellies look? I havenít seen any reasonably priced ones with a decent amount of meat in them. I made a 10 pound pork butt into buckboard bacon, we are going to slice it and try it tomorrow.

I buy my meet at Capital Packers. Bacon for them is a side of pork smocked and belly is the same thing raw. Just have come back from Sobeys. Shoulders are nice with no skin, bellies are fat.

I just finished smoking bacon last weekend, it turned out nice for my first try.

I bought 3 skinless bellies for 120 bucks.

Saw it in the flyer here too, heading into Cranbrook This morning. I hate store bought bacon. I only eat my good old fashioned home cured and smoked.

Could we convince you to do a tutorial thread on the process ?

I've got notes from my previous batches and appreciated your input very much but a step by step with pictures would sure be great.

I have decided to commit any future recipes/ tutorials to another site which I prefer not to name.

The internet is full of bacon tutorials. Only a few keystrokes away
But feel free to reach out if you get stuck on a project.

Picked up a pork shoulder and some spicy jack cheese. Gonna grind her up tomorrow. Probably cold ish smoke for 6Ė8 hrs.
Any ideas for a simple recipe would be great.
Was thinking
Garlic, salt, pepper, cure, ground up ice and the jack cheese.

1lb of Bacon just cryovac-ed in the whey brine of the Bleu Cheese I made yesterday.

Interesting experiment-Regular bacon does not hold much appeal anymore.

I went to Sobeys this morning and I was disappointed in the pork bellies, way to much fat.

So I did pick up a pork roast at $2/lb , a lot better deal, if I don't make it into supper tomorrow night, I just may make it into a ham or a bacon.
