Maple Bacon

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 

So Dave and I both wanted to duplicate Brican's maple bacon without knowing we were doing it.

 

Neither of us has tasted Brican's, all we have is pictures to go buy.  

Here is my version.

 

 

Cure #1, seasoning and maple sugar.

 

 

 

Belly seasoned and into a zip-lok for 7 days.  No pic of that.   HA.   This was the belly I started with.

 

 

 

Quick rinse under warm water to remove the cure after 7 days then hang or lay on a rack  till the belly is dry.

 

Rinsed and dried.

 

 

Added more maple sugar and back into a Zip Lok for 7 days.

 

 

 

After 7 more days.

 

 

 

Dried at room temp for 12 hours and now cold smoking with cob pellets.

 

 

 

 

 

Going to cold smoke for at least 36 hours.

 

 

More later.....

As good as that looks I'm pretty sure it wouldn't make it to October in our house.

This was before the smoke, at the very beginning of the smoke.   That color came from the maple sugar.

 

 

It got 12 hours of cob smoke last night.

I'm interested on how the maple flavor comes through. Where you get the maple sugar? Milroy farms, between us, south of Salisbury, is getting $11 per pound...JJ
