Pretty basic marinade. This recipe is for 1 pound so you can adjust for the pounds you use.

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup dark rum
1/4 cup soy
1 Tbs lemon juice
4-5 whole cloves or just less than 1/4 tsp ground
6 crushed peppercorns or 1/2 tsp course ground
6 allspice berries or 1/2 tsp ground
2 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cure #1...Only needed if your going to smoke...omit if your going to dehydrate.
1/4 tsp liq smoke (opt for dehydrating)

Mix all together and let marry for 30 mins before adding strips. I heated my marinade to open the spice up but you really dont need to.

Add strips to marinade in a plastic container or bag for a min of 1 hour, longer is better.


Racked. Not going to air dry because i dont have time.

Cold smoke for 2 hours using Alder. Prob in the dehydrator after to speed things up.
