Homemade Hickory Smoked Bacon

There is nothing in this world that is tastier than Bacon!  I used to think that all bacon was pretty much the same.  Oh, how wrong I was.  After making my own bacon, I can no longer eat that stuff that passes for bacon in the big box grocery stores.  Homemade bacon is the best thing that I have ever made.  No joke!  It is like the angels opened the heavens and delivered it to me.  It is so fantastic.  It is a must try.
