7 days. Roughly 24 hours to air dry, then smoke.

We are done. Smoked it with apple and hickory to an internal temp of 135. let it cool for a few hours, then sliced it up. I wound up having to hand slice it because it was too wide for my slicer. The boys said, no more store bought bacon. It turned out awesome! Here's the final pics, plus a pic of the best partners I could ever ask for.

Donk, those boys look sturdy, Dad's feedin 'em right. Also, please provide my compliments to the younger, he's definitely wearing the right shirt. And the Home of the Noble Men of Kyle is only a short drive from your place, when the time comes.
