Re: Dry curing bacon
I dabble in curing and smoking meat. Jerky, bacon, sausage, salami,etc.
Lots of fun, some really good food. I have a mix of store bought and home built equipment. Bacon is actually fairly simple and straight forward. Most recipes use sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite instead of salt Peter these days. Much more consistent and effective in controlling bacteria.

I like the Salt Peter it keeps the meat pink and black powders quite handy in the kitchen.
