Homemade bacon

Anyone ever made it?

My brother got me America's Test Kitchen's DIY cookbook (they're the peeps that do Cook's Illustrated), and it includes a good lookin' recipe for homemade bacon that they swear beats the pants off most anything you can buy... plus, since you have it in slab form (which seems to be pretty hard to find unless you order it), you can do nice things like lardons.

Anyhoo, after wandering all over the butcher shops and grocery stores in Montgomery (only one could get it, and it was $8/pound), I asked the meat manager at Publix if he could get any, and he said yes. And it was only going to be $3.19/pound. I went to pick it up this morning and the guy had made a mistake - my 5-pound order was 11.44 pounds, but it was marked at $2.69/pound. The manager said he knew that was more than I wanted, but if I'd take the whole thing, he'd take another 40 cents off per pound.

So I have 11 pounds of pork belly in my fridge, some pink salt on the way for the cure, and a box full of apple wood in my shed. And bacon will be made.

They also have a recipe for pancetta, which I'll attempt at some point, too.

Well, to make it bacon you do have to do stuff to it, otherwise it'd just be smoked pork belly.

One of my friends makes his own and it's amazing. Also delicious is thick cut (like little nuggets) smoked then grilled. Holy shit. Bacon nuggets.

Yep, you can't do bacon nuggets (lardons) unless you get it as a slab. That pre-sliced shit just don't work.

Just a comment.

Every recipe I've seen for bacon has a method for curing. Like 7 days.
