Bacon making with a unique flavor

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Applied the dry cure to the pork belly and then added a generous amount of Tatonka Dust seasoning to get the flavor deep through out the meat during the 9 day cure in the fridge.

Here is a pic of the pork belly unwrapped after it rest in the fridge and in the sink just before rinsing and soaking.



This is the pork bellies after a few fry tests and rinsing and soaking for 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get the salt taste down.



Pork bellies getting a light shake of the Tatonka Dust to freshen the flavor. Then the pork bellies went back into the fridge unwrapped overnight to form a nice pellicle on them.



In the smoker getting 14 hours of apple smoke from the tube smoker and the smoker cold smoking at 100º.



Close up in the smoker.



Pork bellies just out of the smoker, they have a good color to them!



Pork belly going through the meat slicer and making bacon...



A pan of bacon from the 2 pork bellies.



and the cooked up money shot... Mmmm bacon... this experiment was an absolute hit, the taste is so unique and perfect for bacon; we will being doing this again!



Thanks for looking!

I really love the Tatonka Dust seasoning RTBBQ2. If you haven't tried it I highly suggest it, it is quite unique and probably different than anything you have most likely had before!

Since we can't post links anymore, google Owens bbq, or Tatonka dust and that will get you to the proper place.

OK, will do, I will have to see if they ship to the great white north xmas_snowman.gif  and also use paypal.

 

And here, I have to do a bit of explaining.  The town I live in, is about the same distance from the equator as any town about 30 miles or so from the northern borders of California.  About 1/3 of all US States lie north of us, out to the west.

That bacon looks amazing!  How much did that meat slicer set you back?  I've wanted one for a while.

I own a Chefmate GC 10 slicer, bought it new about decade ago, so no idea on the price paid, but it works as good as the day I bought it

 

Never had a single problem with this slicer.

I just looked it up and it has a $830 price tag on it
