Got another pork belly from Costco yesterday.

9.46 lbs @ $2.99/lb for $28.29

Working on perfecting my bacon 🥓 technique on Costco Belly’s, before attempting the belly’s I have in the freezer, that came along with my whole hog purchased from a pasture raised pig 🐖 from a farm local to me in MN

I cut the belly into 3 pieces, and am trying 3 different cure formulas

a wet cure, the belly submerged in a bribe of water, salt, maple 🍁 syrup, and TCM (Prague Powder #1)

And 2 different dry cures, one all maple 🍁, the other half maple 🍁 and half brown sugar

All will be smoked with maple wood
