Home Cured Bacon

My first foray into charcuterie was a success. Curing blend adapted from Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking and Curing. It is made from a blend of salt, sugar and pink salt (sodium nitrate). Make sure to buy real pink salt and not the bull shit Himilayan pink salt, it is not made with sodium nitrate.  Unfortunately, quite a few recipes require both a smoker and also specialty ingredients (e.g. juniper berries).
