Oven-Smoked Bacon

I'm one of those who likes doing things from scratch even if they aren't terribly cost effective. But the curing salt is around $11 a pound. At the rate of 3/4 tsp. per use, I'd have to make some SERIOUS amounts of bacon, sausage, pepperoni, pastrami, etc. for it to pay off. Does anybody know of any reasonable substitutes?
