Homemade Bacon: Cured, Smoked, & Grilled (Can It Get Any Better Than This?)

Finally made my own bacon from scratch by curing a pork belly, smoking it, and finally slicing and grilling it on my kamado. It was awesome! I’m making my own bacon from now on.

Be sure to follow the guidelines below to ensure the proper ratio of pink curing salt to meat.
