First BB Bacon - super mini smoker

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

To the credit of all those who posted on this site another newbie has successfully made their first BBB.  Under extreme conditions (my smoker a SmokinTex 1400, is up at camp) I was able to make some great product using my Smokey Joe grill and Todd's AMZNS.  Check out my pics.

 

Using Pops brine recipe (thanks Pops) I brined a shoulder which I had deboned.  Kept it in the brine for 10 days.

No foam or ropey conditions here, used 1 gallon of brine to an 8lb shoulder. That's a couple of fat pieces in this shot.

cut a couple of slices for a quick fry test.

Looks good now off to the WSJ for 5 hours of TBS using cherry dust in the A-MAZE-N Smoker 6x6. 

5 hours later; then refrigerated overnight and a chill in the freezer......A little frost on these IMG_2217.JPG.

All sliced up by hand and ready to vacuum package.

But what do I do with those pesky leftover bits and pieces?

And it tastes great!  This proves when ya gotta smoke' ya gotta smoke.  I'm going to make a mini-WSM for the next emergency smoke here away from camp.

Thanks again for all those great posts I couldn't have done this without them
