Bacon
« on: September 11, 2012, 07:39:25 AM »
  This is my second attempt at making bacon. My first attempt was with a frozen pork belly that was not of good quality. The bacon was ok, but I knew it could get better. This time I started with a Berkshire belly that was 10 1/2 pounds and very fresh.


First you fire up the egg and add chunks of mesquite


 

Then you take you awesome looking belly that has been brining for 5 days. I flavored one with hot peppers, one with garlic and one with brown sugar
 

 


After 3 hours at 200* you have bacon!
 

 


 

 


 

 

Jill's staying home today so it's fresh bacon and eggs for breakfast  ;D ;D

You guys must be genetically related to my wife. She's already had bacon flavored ice cream-although I don't remember where or when. She loves Diet Coke, and in her words,"The world will be perfect when the Coca Cola Company starts marketing bacon flavored Diet Coke".

Oh well, that would have to taste better than grit flavored Diet Coke! no_no

;D Does it pass the stretch test? I mean it should pull apart when fresh and not stretch to twice it's length.
:D

Looks mighty tasty Steve. I have not eaten bacon for a long time. Wish I was next door, if only for the smell. :D
Move'n on.

Bacon should have it's own food group, and is the answer to world peace.

Pork belly is near the top of my list of new things I'd like to try smoking. Yours looks amazing btw. Nice job
