Smokin Tip
After curing pork bellies for smokin bacon:  "Soaking to remove some of the saltiness will also work. Test it before you smoke by cutting off a small piece (or two or three or four) and frying them up. If too salty, use the soak method you've read about. I've done that with two recent Canadian bacon smokings and the salt level is perfect." By Jfsjazz posted on SmokinTex Forums.

Smokin Bacon by Sean C.
" I smoked them (pork bellies) for three hours at 225°F giving me an interior temperature well over 165°F and then I actually cool them off with a breeze from a fan, let them sit overnight before I cut them and actually fry them or grill them from there. These are thin bellies though. If they were thicker I would've gone for four hours. I just want to make sure they're above that magic 165°F degrees." By Sean C.

Apple Wood Smoked Bacon
"This is for a 4 pound slab of pork belly (AKA pork side):

Crush: 2 Tablespoons black peppercorns
1 Tablespoon fennel seeds
2 Tablespoons Juniper berries

Add: 1/4 cup Kosher salt
2 teaspoons curing salt
1/4 cup: (your choice): maple syrup (the real stuff, not Aunt Jemima), or, brown sugar or, honey. Or, make your own mix of your favorites."

Smoked Jerky
"Finally got the time to make some jerky today. Turned out really good. Smoked at 200°F for 2 hours. Emptied the wood box, turned the temp down to 130°F and started the drier. Dried for 2.5 hours."

First Batch Smoked Jerky
"Had the butcher slice an Angus Boneless Round Roast and marinated. We learned from this batch. Will do more soon. The dryer is great. We smoked it between 130°F-150°F. Closer to 130°F. Think we need a higher temp for the smoking process. Not yet what we want but not bad at all."
