Dang that looks good, James!!!  It is hard to believe how good it is, isn't it ?!?!

 

Beautiful color when you combine heat with smoke on a cured Bacon.

 

I like to smoke it longer & lower for maximum smoke, but your's looks awesome!!!

 

 

MMMMmmmm......Thanks for the Views!!

I was thinking about a longer,slower/lower smoke, Bear, but I was concerned (ignorant in this case) about the danger zone.  Does that rule still apply after a cure?  I'm guessing no, but I was unsure and played it safe. What rules do you play by here?

No danger zone with meat that is cured properly.

Don't forget a lot of people cold smoke Bacon for a lot of hours.

Lower temp smoking takes longer to get nice color like you got, and cold smoking takes even longer yet, but no danger zone to worry about.

 

Smoking cured meat is kinda like a street fight---Once it's cured, there really isn't any rules!  biggrin.gif

 

You get your preferences set after trying it all ways, but I'm lucky---I love it ALL ways. I'll be doing my preferred way tomorrow.

 

 

Thanks again for the nice views,

Thanks!  Bear agrees with you, and so do I.  My first attempt left a little to be desired on the smoke question.  It all tastes great, but MORE SMOKEY GOODNESS is required.  I think
Bear's words were something to the effect of, "cures are kind of like street fights; once the meat is cured, there are no rules."  Still cracks me up!  ROTF.gif  I plan a nice, long, low, slow smoke for the next batch (which is sitting in the fridge as I type). thumb1.gif 

 

BTW: you doing OK with all of the fires down there?

NICE! Beautiful looking bacon. Somethings you can look at and

think, " Man, I want that now, I know it's gonna taste awesome".

 

Nice work and thanks for the Qview, I always wanna know what

it's supposed to look like so I know I'm on the right track.
