Beef Bacon Questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

A friend of mine wants me to try making Beef Bacon.

 

Would I just get a Beef plate/Belly and cure it like I would a pork belly then smoke it?

What cuts would you recommend?

I saw that someone used boneless short ribs.

 

I lean towards dry brining my bacon, but would wet brining be better for beef bacon?

 

I am leaning towards a hickory/pecan mix.  Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks
