BBB like ham

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I working on my 1st BBB. I used 1 tbs TQ per lb and a salt brown sugar mix. I have already learned that I used to much salt, oops live and learn. I have done 3 1 hour soaks in ice water and the saltyness is much better. It cured in my frig for 10 days, I did a fry test and found it to be more like ham than bacon. i will let it dry overnight and smoke it tomorrow. It is fantastic but I was a bit suprised. Is that how it is supose to be?

Mine came out tasting like a cross between bacon and ham.  Careful frying at too high a temp.  It will burn because there is not enough fat.
