Youngest Son's First BuckBoard Bacon

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Had Rob come over to the house toting a pork butt he and a friend bought, wanting to make buckboard bacon out of it.  He boned it out and divided it himself, mixed up the pickle and put it down in the brine for a 10 day soak.   Come a Saturday he wanted to smoke it but I had to work all day, so he did the honors, 1st time by himself.  I hung it for him and snapped a couple pics before leaving for work, he came over a couple hours later and started the smokehouse and babysat it, adding chunks every hour and monitoring the internal temp until it hit 152°, then pulled it out just before I got home; final pics of it on the block!  He was quite proud of his handiwork and toted it off for he and his buddy to split and devour!

The small piece in the lower left was a sample for me to try, he took the rest and they were going to slice it and BBQ it on the grill at the party they were going to; no doubt as the compliment to the cold frosty beverages they were serving, lol!  I called him a few days later and he said it was perfect, everyone enjoyed it tremendously!

The brine was 1 cup salt, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp. DQ Cure #1, and 1 gallon of water.  For myself, I cut the salt down to as much as ¼ the amount.
