It is amazing!
I see pancetta (unsmoked bacon) selling for no less than $12 per pound at the market, and the pre-sliced stuff is $20+.
I will also be making some of that for the freezer when I do this.

Very cool. I'm a member of that forum too! HA!
amazing what they get away with charging for some of that stuff in the grocery stores.
love the transformation a simple piece of pork can go through with the help of a little salt, sugar and smoke.
Great thread. I'm assuming you can use a Weber smoker to smoke bacon?

I go straight to the butcher and get belly for $3. I haven't invested in a whole pig yet to see if the total price was less. If I felt more confident about my full on butchery skill I know it would pay.
Smoked bacon in a Weber Smokey Mountain, never bought bacon from the store again!
