Manny's apple smoked bacon

Discussion in 'Smoking Bacon' started by al swearingen, Feb 8, 2012.

  1. Manny's is a restaurant in MSP that makes the best bacon appetizer that I have ever had.  I've tried to replicate it,  but haven't had much luck.  Here is a picture of it,  has anyone made bacon thick (it's probably 3/4" thick) like this,  and how did you finish cooking it?  Thanks for any help!

    WOW!!!...............................now that's a slice of bacon [​IMG]

    My left arm got numb just looking at it.

    I usually slice my bacon very thin, I've never had it that thick before.
     
  3. At 3/4" that's a steak! Looks really good though!
     
  4. At the restaurant it is awesome,  at home I can't get it as tender and "cooked" all the way through like they do at the restaurant.

    They may be Deep frying, then tossing on a hot griddle or grill.  
     
  6. I looked up the restaurant, from their website I get the impression that they do things the fancy way.

    I'll bet that they cook it sous vide (inside a vacuum bag in a circulated water bath ) to get the super tenderness and then they crisp up the outside.

    Yup pretty sure somthing like that than under the 1600* broiler, pic on there site shows insides are cooked before the outside gets it color.

    Just a thought.........Do you think they smoke it cut to this size and then grill, broil, pressure cook or whatever they do to finish it off......
