ok I was able to remove the ribs from the meat. When I did on one side there seemed to be what looks like alot of fat. I trimmed out some. Is this actually fat or is it conective tissue? Should I leave the rest in? Should I save it and grind it into the beef sausage that I am working on? Should I throw it into a stock pot?

ok so it looks like equal parts kosher salt and brown sugar and some maple syrup to bind it. Spread it on. Put it in a zip lock bag in the fridge for a week. It looks like most is smoked afterwards. Do I need to smoke it?

That is up to you and your taste buds. I, personally, prefer a nice smoked bacon.

I added picture to fb album of the breast boned out, the cure and the cure on the lamb. Now it sits for a week to cure in the fridge.

If you don't smoke it you will still have cured bacon - it just won't have that smokey flavor.

for my cure I used 2 cups of kosher salt, 2 cups brown sugar, about 30 grinds of black pepper, a heavy sprinkling of garlic and onion powder, smoked papprika, a tblspn of liquid smoke, and about 6 oz of molasses.
