Griff, no problem. Yours looks really good!
Sliced up the bacon tonight!
Have I ever mentioned I hate slicing? Maybe it's the POS slicer I have(Toastmaster). I need to remedy that when I find a good one at a good price.
I actually almost forgot to get pictures as once I got started and had bacon fat hands I got rolling. I did manage to get a couple though.
The peppered version. I had to cut each slab in half before slicing they were so big.
I cooked a few slices in the microwave while packaging it up. Really pretty darn good if I must say so myself. Definitely has a good hickory smoke flavor!
I think I'm set for a while as I ended up with 12 packages of at least 1 lb each. A few are about 1.5 lbs and 3 packages of cooking scraps. I'm definitely going to be cooking some green beans with some of these scraps real soon.
I guess I'll hold off on the other slab(same size)for a while.
I'm going to be up in north Alabama cooking for the Red Cross again in about a month and I'm thinking about stopping by the slaughterhouse where these slabs came from. Can't beat the price at $2.00 a lb.
