Smoking bear bacon q view

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well I started the process last night. Used 30lbs of my bear and 20lbs of pork. Ground once through 1/8" plate. Mixed in curleys venison bacon seasoning and cure. Let it sit overnight in the fridge and put on the smoker this morning at 10:30. Will keep adding pics as the smoke goes.

Doing a nice job on a big batch, Rico!!!

 

I started out with Curley's Venison Bacon Seasoning & Cure, but I found it a little bland.

 

I got better results with my own mix in my "Bear Loaf" (which is actually Beef).

 

Yours will still be great !!

Starting to get some nice color. You're going to have a nice bunch of bacon.

Thank you. And here it is after 3 hours of smoke. Now bump the temp up to 180 and wait until they start hitting 150. Can't wait for breakfast tomorrow.

Well three of the loaves are done. And I do have to say I truly surprised myself again. Earlier this year was my first attempt at venison sausage and that was great but this bacon is amazing. Can't wait to slice it up and have it with some eggs in the morning with the family!!!!

I am JUST NOW finding this and it's FABULOUS!!!

 

(May be doing something special with bear involved on Christmas Day perhaps, and so stay tuned).

 

Meanwhile, I love what you did! Cheers! - Leah
