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 bacon....recipes/tips?

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...http://www.amazenproducts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=AMNTS 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
