After that - let it cool in the fridge for 30 minutes...
At that point - you're ready to fry it up in a pan!

I really enjoyed the experience of making bacon since I had never done it before. I can guess that if I were able to smoke it - that would have added a lot of flavor to the bacon as well. All in all it was fun to do but I'm not sure I would keep buying it. The convenience of bacon at the store is pretty nice. But - like I mentioned - being able to see how to take it from pork belly to bacon to MY BELLY was pretty fun.
Thanks to the folks at the Original Bacon Kit for sending this my way.
