I don't have any close neighbors to bother me Foam & I like it that way  :icon_mrgreen:

 

 

 

The closest thing to me is yonder farm - you can see the silos at the top of the picture. It is actually close to 3/4 mile away - after you crest the hill you drop down in a hollow for a bit then come up out to the farm...

 

 

 

 

Nothing in the other direction - the closest "neighbor" that way is across the county line over a mile away  2thumbs.gif

Yup I'm friendly enough but I do like my privacy - I can hoot, holler, scream, yell or make whatever commotion I want at any time of the day or night without having to worry about bothering anyone. I love it!  :xrocker:

The bacon took on some good color in the smoker today.

 

 

 

 

It has a great smell now

 

 

 

 

that makes you wanna hack it to pieces & fry up on the spot  :32:

 

 

 

So before that happened I put the bacon in the fridge & quickly shut the door  :icon_eek:   In the morning I will make the call as to whether it gets another round of smoke & if it does it will probably get apple.

Yup you guessed it - I decided to put the bacon in for another round of smoke so I got the AMNPS going while I got the bacon out of the fridge.

 

 

 

Here they are bathing in apple smoke this time. This will be the last round of smoke they get - once they are done smoking today I will put them in the fridge for a couple days then slice up.

The BBB is now out of the smoker again.

 

 

 

 

Here is what it looks like now.

 

The bacon has had 24 hours of smoke at this point - 12 hickory & 12 apple. It is now in the fridge where it will stay for the next two days & then get sliced.

I was able to get the BBB sliced tonight. Here are the two halves again...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got my slicer sanitized & ready to go.

 

 

 

 

& cranked out the bacon.

 

 

 

 

 

Closer view of the bacony goodness.

 

 

 

 

I had to fry some up & eat. Very good!  :banana_smiley:

 

 

 

 

Then I had to fry up some more

 

 

 

 

& make a bacon Sammy with homemade bread  :icon_mrgreen:

 

 

 

The BBB turned out great just as it always does with this method & I can say again as I always do that I won't  be going back to the long way of doing it.

 

 

A little under 5 days from when I decided to make it till I was eating it - not too shabby  kewl.gif

 

 

 

 

Thank you for riding the Buckboard Express & have a nice day!  :icon_mrgreen:

That looks really good. I never heard of making bacon that way. Is that a marinade express you used?

Thanks man  :smile:  It's some good eating BBB!  It's not a marinade express it is an AGS vacuum tumbler. I got it from Todd at Amazen products. It's the ticket for making BBB really fast & I use it for lots of other stuff too - I'm very happy with it...

Hope I'm not reviving a dead thread here but just really liked what I was seeing in the thread!!

I assume you are using this:

http://www.amazenproducts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=AGS-CT20

 

I ask because my brother and I just picked up 17 pounds of pork belly to turn into some bacon. I might have to give regular Pork butt a try as it is cheaper.

I assume this is quicker because normally once you have the meat ready to cure your looking at 3+ days, sometimes 10+ too, just sitting in the fridge


But this method you can basically set it up overnight and smoke it the next day?!?! :icon_eek: I must try this

 

edit: If that is the correct thing you are using, what else do you use it for? Horribly newbie question I know but I'm genuinely curious
