A little design and engineering from youtube and the web helped. Combination apple wood and hickory!! Stunning results. Notes: too salty and a little over smoked. Easy fix after slicing the belly into 1 pound slabs. Just soak in water to reduce the salt and smoke. Perfection. Bacon with eggs, bacon with roasted brussel sprouts, bacon bits with tofu and vegetables and bacon with bacon. less
