Hot Smoking Bacon...tell me it's ok!?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My brother wants me to smoke some pork bellies and make bacon for him...I've never done it.

My smoker is a fridge/LPG fueled and is darn tough to maintain sub-200F temps.

I've browsed a few threads and other sources online.

Looking for some guidance from guys who have hot smoked

How does the product turn out?

Thanks for the help!

I have not Hot smoked Bacon, but have you considered an AMNTS Pellet Tube Smoke Generator? They are not very expensive and you can cold smoke anything from Bacon to Cheese... They are worth the investment as once you try homemade Bacon you will be getting a lot of use out of the Tube.


There are tons of Bacon Curing Recipes here, from the very simple Pops Brine to a variety of Dry Curing mixes...JJ

I agree with Jimmy. Get a AMNTS or AMNPS. I just did my first bacon this weekend with the AMNPS, and it turned out fantastic.

Having not tried hot smoke, I am thinking the biggest difference hot and cold smoking would be, where the fat is rendered...In the smoker or in the pan. I save bacon grease for cooking, but with a drip pan, the hot smoked grease should be just as good. Thoughts?...JJ

I think I'm gonna do it.

If I can find it I'll do one with skin on and 1 off.

I'll make some new threads when we get around to doing it
