Good prices on meat means it's time to experiment. So I decided with one rack to make @Pops6927 bacon on a stick. So I took the two thicker ends of the the separate racks for the bacon on a stick. Here are both of them before cutting them up:
And here are the two halves of separate racks being used for bacon on a stick:
Mixed up a batch of Pop's brine with some pepper, garlic, and onion mixed in and plopped them in there for a 3 day soak:
So now, what do so with the thinner halves of the racks. Since bacon had me thinking breakfast, I figured why not season one half rack with Pop's breakfast sausage seasoning. Rubbed the other half with Jeffs run just as a control in this experiment, a control I know will be tasty. The Jeff's rub:
And Pop's breakfast sausage seasoning:
Threw them on the pit barrel with some hickory:
After 3 hours they looked like this:
Darker looking rack is the Pop's and the reddish one is the Jeff's.
At this point I foiled them and since this is a family forum, I figured I'd use one of my beverages and one of my daughter Sophia's.
Hahah that foiling liquid seemed good with breakfast sausage... Apple and maple right?
Popped them in the oven because it was windy and cold out. Probably going to check after about an hour. I'll be back!
