Montreal Steak Seasoning Cured Belly Bacon - with Qview & CUREview - Page 2

Twenty minutes later the smoker temp is down to 61F.  I closed the door and powered it up again for the second smoke.  I'll let this one go until the smoker is 101 - 105F.  Towards the end I'll make sure the thermostat is adjusted to let it ride between 95-105F.

By 5:10am it was all the way up to 102F.  I adjusted the thermostat to click off the element.  It should coast back down to 95F or so with the plenum fan circulating the smoke.  I'll let it cycle for several hours before putting more chips on for the 3rd smoke.

At 7:15am I opened it up and added more wet hickory chips.  I think checking every two hours should do it for now.

I took the 3 slabs out after 18 hours running between 95-105F.  I kinda lost count, but I think it was 6 piles of hickory chips in the chip box.

 

I wrapped the slabs in plastic and they are resting in the fridge until tomorrow evening, when some BLTs will be made, using tomatos from the garden.

After letting it rest in the refrigerator for most of the day, I sliced off a hunk and tossed it in the freezer to chill for slicing. 

 

After slicing, here is the spread:

Its nice and smoky with a good spiced flavor.  I'll be making some BLTs in a couple hours.

I think they would have trouble frying bacon in zero-gee.  Perhaps its an experiment worth suggesting to NASA. 

 

I think it would have to be pre-cooked on the ground, refrigerated, then nuked in orbit to heat it up to eat for breakfast.
