Bacon again

It's our wedding anniversary. I'm making bacon:

Three batches of bacon, each weighing more than three pounds.

We bought over ten pounds of pork belly at Rudolph's meat market in Deep Ellum today. Back home, I cut it into three chunks and applied the basic salt cure described in Ruhlman and Polcyn's Charcuterie. In a week, I'll smoke it.
