    I've been wanting to do this for a very long time. Very interested to see how this goes.

    I smoked the bacon with apple wood for 2 hours this evening. I then sliced it as thin as I could with my chefs knife, but that was still a bit thicker than thick cut commercial bacon.
    After several minutes of frying and letting the bacon cool, my wife and oldest kid tried it. The wife thought it a little too salty, but liked the flavor. The daughter loved it and thought the saltyness was just fine.
    I liked the flavor, but thought it was also on the salty side. I could not taste the bay leaves and the pepper seasoning was just right.
    If I was to do this again and I certainly will, I will decrease the salt by at least a third and skip the bay leaves all together.
    Here are a couple of photos of the finished bacon slab.

    Now to get an actual meat slicer tomorrow.

    The Gene Pool is in need of a lot of Chlorine!

    Better yet, drain the entire pool!
