My bacon experiment went so well I am bringing it back by popular demand from my neighborhoods cry for more bacon. I also am giving it a name, Boykjo's bacon and it will sit with boykjo's kielbasa.
Note: do not attempt this recipe. The tender quick amount is to much. The amount of tender quick should be 1/4 cup. I didnt edit the recipe so it will match the thread title.
1/2 cup Mortons tender quick
2 cups water
2 cups jeffs rub
I added 1 cup of turbinado sugar to jeffs recipe to sweeten
belly halved and ingredients mixed
belly bagged with brine for 48hrs. it will stiffin up some and get some nice red rub color
Flood light and the amns lit with some hickory sawdust
brined belly on the offset
14 hrs later, flipped once......Boykjo's Bacon
With my first attempt I sliced the bacon thin and posted. Later I sliced it thick and lightly fried it and it was great.
This bacon will be sliced up soon as well as some more being made. there seem to be belly donation epidemic in the neighborhood.
Thanks for looking
