Nice !  I just today bought 5LBS of pork belly and some Hi Mountain Buckboard bacon cure for my first attempt.

Glad makes a 2 1/2 Gal zip bag that is perfect for Slabs of Bacon.

It will make the everyday flippin and floppin easier.

I get mine at Wally World.

No curing agent other than kosher salt?

It's not a worm hole, they've just been sitting on the shelf for a week. Getting "extra ripe".

If you don't know what each piece weighed. How did you know how much salt and other ingredients to put on the pieces? Are you planning on cold smoking or hot smoking this Homemade bacon your making? I have always used cure in my bacon. I just dont want to see anyone getting sick.
Bacon is the Crack Cocaine of the Food World.

Be careful about calling yourself and EXPERT! An ex is a has-been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure!
