Latest Buckboard Bacon with Q-view

post #1 of 11

Cured another batch of BBB because my college kids came home & cleaned out my supply.  36.gif  

 

I used Morton's Tender Quick #1 and dry-cured for 7 days.  The bacons were rubbed with black pepper and brown sugar.  I decided to soak them for a couple of hours; I normally do this in bowls, but I realized the FoodSaver bags I cured them in would also work well for soaking -- DUH!  Here they are in the bath...

Did the fry test...

I smoked them for 8.5 hours with hickory using the soldering iron-in-a-coffee-can method to smolder the dust.  I had a devil of a time during the smoke because we had a blustery storm blow in Friday night, burning the dust at fast rates and keeping temps really low.  Worked out just fine in the end, though.  I just packaged 9 or so pounds of BBB (well, probably 8 after the weekend consumption...icon_redface.gif).

I was disappointed to find as much fat in some cuts as there was.  Most of the cuts were nice and lean, as usual for BBB.

 

Thanks for perusing my post!

I absolutely love buck board bacon and many of my customers ask for it over the belly. It's better on BLT's to me too.
