Pork Flavored Candy - With Q-View

  1. So I started down the bacon path, you might recall my first post with the prep work up to this point...did 10 lbs as a test run.

    so, I made a few mistakes but learned a bunch....

    I changed up pop's brine and added too much sugar and brown sugar plus i added maple syrup.

    Kept the salt and #1 right on track.

    In the end, I should have removed the white sugar all together since i added maple syrup.

    It turned out nice, just a little too sugary for my tastes. My 8 year old loves it.

    Tastes great in a BLT but, by itself with eggs, its not great...The sugar carmalized way too fast when cooking

    Notice the Hobart in the background? Craigs List for $200 and put that $140 POS from Gander Mtn to shame!

    Onto the egg for as long as I can keep it cool.

    26 hours of cold smoke then wrapped and to the fridge for a week.

    After its 7 day rest...Sliced and ready for vacuum sealing

    Glad my wife was out of town, I had a weekend of bacon and beer!
