    Picked up a case from Twin Lakes/Piggly Wiggly the other day...

    They told me they only come in case of 4 now but they sold one.. knowing I asked for 3..

    Great place..

    They took the paper off and cut them into vac paking size for me..

    Put 4 slabs into the brine and vac paked the rest..

    Slabs in the shed fridge and the rest into the freezer..

    Here's how I make the bacon..

    Thanks!!!

     I am happy with this case.

    Prolly gonna do some of Rollers dry bag pancetta with one or two of the slabs in the freezer..

     Thanks!!!

    I dont go by the time..I take it to the color we like..

    Will be using pecan and corn cob with some sugar cane this time..

    Its hot here now so I crank the mes to 100 for the first few hours to dry them out ..then off and lay the smoke on!!

    I like them to look like this..takes 20-30 hours depending on the ambient..


    Have a great day!!

    I did mine for 10 hours, think I will try longer this time.

    Nice slab you got there.

    Looks awesome Craig!   Being you are the bacon king... :)  I have a question.    You say around 25-30 hrs of smoke.   Can that be done in 2 runs or does it have to be one long smoke.   If 2 runs,  do you put it in the frig and go again?

    I'm  about ready to do some more myself.    I didn't get a lot of smoke in my first shot at it due to family events, but I want to get it right this time.

    Thanks Wes!!!

    If you do it in two runs it would be best to fridge it between runs..

    Thanks for the compliment...I am sure some of the ppm gang would disagree tho...hahahahhaaaha..
