    Wing-Man's Note:

    Makin' bacon. This is really easy and the best part is there are no phosphates or nitrite chemicals in the finished product. So you can feel good about eating it. Freezes well. I divide into one pound packages and freeze. If you like peppered bacon just smother it before smoking.
