    YEUUUUUUUP  

    Time to make the bacon jerky.

    Last night i cut each piece in half, did the racked cook at 200* 

    Put the slices in a brown paper bag and went into the fridge. 

    This morning im putting in the dehydrator at a temp of 150* for 2 hours, i will flip each slice at the 1 hour mark then i will begin the honey siracha glaze. The racks i have are 3 full and 3 empty with staggered, i do this to disrupt the air flow in the dehydrator. Bacon is just a tad over 3/4lb.



    Oh y'all want the recipe do ya?

    ½ lb thick cut bacon
    2 tb sriracha sauce
    2 tb raw honey

    Instructions
    Drape each slice on a baking rack that's fitted on a baking sheet to collect the grease. 
    Cut in half for easier handling.
    Bake at 200* {or your lowest heat setting} for 2-3 hours. Occasionally, blot each piece.

    If using a dehydrator {which is much easier} transfer to a dehydrator, temp at 160*. If not, continue in the oven. Half way in, flavor with anything you want. 
    Brush each slice with a combination of sriracha and honey. 
    Allow the dehydrator {or oven} to go for 3-4 hours or until its reached your desired texture. It will take longer in the oven.

    My dehydrator has proven to be a very nice addition to my list of equipment.

  12. Tried this awhile back and it is fantastic! (I know, pics). Have a 1lb batch in the oven now for the first stage and would add, use 200 deg on your oven, my oven goes down to 170 and the last batch didn't really render out and was a bit greasy (bacon grease though).Going with 200 this time.
