    Costco regularly sells pork belly if you don’t have a good pork vendor in your area.

    I often use a glaze of honey to bind the curing mixture and I’m 50/50 on hickory or apple (meaning we alternate not that we mix).

    I cure but don’t cook my bacon. I try to keep the smoker to under 100F degrees and let the smoke soak in. Cooking it as shown in the video starts to render the fat. When it’s time to eat, then we cook.
