Doing your own bacon is ridiculously easy and so much better than store bought.
Buy a skinned pork belly from Costco.I place the belly in a plastic rubbermaid container - because its easier/cleaner than a freezer bag.I use a generic meat tenderizer/cure and make a light film on each side of the belly.Pepper the hell out of it.1 can of Dr. Pepper or Coke.Put in the refrigerator for 3 days.Flip.Let sit for 3 more days.Wash before smoking - must do this!!!Smoke.You'll never buy bacon again.
