    one of the local markets had butts for $.99 so i picked up a couple.........

    after 10 days with high mountian BB cure i made one 1/2 butt into pepper:

    the peppered:

    and the rubbed:

    had breakfast for dinner and both came out good even though the temp got away from me when the afternoon sun came over and hit the smoker.....cold smoking in az in the summer has it's challenges!

    Great Job Rob!

    Do you share treats with your Pitty?

    Which bacon did you prefer?

    todd, she's an english BT and some how, some way, she seems to get hers. as for the bacon i think i liked the peppered better for all around flavor but the one with rub was great on a BLT. i will say the AMAZING SMOKER is just that. i have a vertical gasser that i put it in and turned the flame to it's lowest setting and lit the AMAZING SMOKER on both sides and it worked great! i had been putting off making bacon cuz it is hard to cool smoke here when the outside temp is 115 and the internal temp on an unlit smoker can be 130+ sometimes. the AMAZING SMOKER  made it easy and i will say if you don't have one guys.........get one.
