You need to think long and hard before you do bacon, once you go there, you'll never be the same. You'll beg the butcher for sides at any price, you wear a trench coat down into china town to the seedy dark and gloomy resturants looking for sides, you'll dream at night of developing a pig with bigger better sides, you'll be a sow belly junkie.

 

This year, I found a place for fresh hocks too. Did I say hams, yes YES! Fresh hams! I wonder if you can cure ears and tails too?

 

Its all Pop's cure, and Bears 10 degree per hour smoke chart. Last year was my first bacon cure, I did 7 sides and was out a month ago.

 

I want to smoke an uncured side..... That sounds sooooooo good. Maybe this year.

Crown Roast that I did for wife's 75 birthday. All the guest loved it.

Favorite smoke?  Earlier this year one of my daughter's came home with her fiancé.  They live 4 hours away but close to the town where his father lives.  His dad and I kind of have an informal competition going about what we can cook/smoke with our backyard grills and smokers.  His dad has an amazing outdoor kitchen he built that I truly envy. 

 

I had just perfected my latest poultry brine and smoked two 6 lbs chickens with hickory for the evening my daughter and her fiancé arrived.  We served dinner and her fiancé took one bite of the chicken and said "Oh my god, that's the best chicken I've ever eaten."  They are both fitness fanatics and basically consumed an entire chicken.  Their comments and their near gluttonous consumption of that chicken makes it one of my absolute favorite smokes.
