Butt Bacon......

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I pulled the muscle group from the pork butt and cured them separately for bacon.... Cold smoked to get some great smoke flavor.... Sliced across the grain.... and what you see is what you get....
Doesn't taste exactly like bacon, but it's good..... The muscle group I used for this is on the "fatty" side of the blade in the butt....
These are good for about anything you can think of.... I like them for BLT's.....

Hello Dave.  Those look darn good.  BLT's, smoked pork for beans, several uses.  Thanks for posting.  Keep Smokin!

Hi Dave, It looks like a couple of pieces are missing, They do look good tho. I have 1 bone in pork shoulder roast to smoke but waiting for a sale on more so I can have a full smoker.

I had to do a taste test to see how much cooking they needed.... I did add some black pepper to kick it up a notch....

what cure did you use? wet or dry?

I used a dry cure rub.... the muscles were about 2.5" diameter...
I was making sausage, from the butt, and pulled those muscle out for "Dollar" bacon slices... Wish they tasted more like bacon...
Next time, if I think of it, I will brine/cure.... maybe that will help the bacon flavor....

Those are from separate muscle groups in a pork butt.... When you take the blade bone out you can find separate muscles in the meat .....

In the store, they call it "cottage" bacon when it comes from the butt.... I think they know... maybe not about pulling out the muscles... but they looked good to me....
