Well, I finally made my first 25 lb. batch of venison bacon, and I can tell you folks, it won't be my last...It was very easy to make, it took minimal time, and the flavor is excellent! I am glad I ordered enough seasoning for a 50 lb. batch because I will be making more. It tastes wonderful cold, and is even better fried in a pan and browned. I added an extra 1/8 cup of black pepper to give it a little extra heat, but I think next time I will go with a 1/4 cup... I did not really notice any extra pepper taste. I am curious though, if anyone else that has made this product has tried any other variations and what the results were. Anyway, here are some q-views of my finished product...Thanks for looking!
