I finally made a go of trying BBB. It was alot easier than I thought it was going to be, but then again all I had to do was follow bears step by step. One thing that was rather difficult was cutting the bone out as you will see I screwed it up. This is going to sound silly but mine tastes more like ham than bacon. Is this normal or did I screw something else up?
Here are some pics.
Just out of the zip lock bags. I dont have an extra fridge just for meat so put them in front of a fan.
In the smoker they go. As you can see my hatchet job trying to get the bone out I have a few different pieces. Im lucky though, family is more interested in taste than looks thank god.
I have the hardest time trying to get a pic of tbs, but I think this one will do. Bear if you read this and Todd, smoked for 9.5 hrs trouble free. Am SOOOOO happy with it after I figured out to nuke the pellets a bit.
All the pieces done and just pulled out waiting to cool a bit before slicing.
Sliced up and ready to go into food saver bags.
This is as close as Im going to get to a BearView
Since Im posting some pics I thought I would throw these in here as well of the double smoked ham I tried.
I am defenitly going to be useing AL's method next time as even the wife said that looked sooo much better than the one I turned out. And we all know the saying about mama..if she isnt happy no ones happy and if she isnt happy long enough we arent happy with only half our stuff.
Fresh out of the smoker
Have no idea why the picture came out so bad..it was time to eat so I guess I wasnt really paying too much attention to it.
Thx for looking.
