    If you feel like writing up the details of the cure and low temp smoke i'd enjoy reading it, or possibly just a link to where you got the instructions. That looks really good!

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Re: Homemade bacon!

    I followed the cure recipe from the book "Charcuterie" which I recommend.
    The curing process is simple and you can find copies of the recipe by google'ing the book title and bacon cure recipe
    The smoking was very similar as well.....the Komodo Kamado temp was held at 180-190 for a final internal temp of 150...took 3.5 hours....I used oak lump charcoal and several pieces of applewood for smoke.
