Q-View of the Bacon
Sorry to be a bit late with this, but I pulled the bacon out of the smoker night before last and hung it up for this picture. Notice the fancy bacon hangers fashioned from dollar store bread cooling racks two racks for a dollar! Those cost me 50 cents each and took a whole two minutes each to make, so I don't guess I'll be buying the $12 hangers now.
I'm waiting for my new Weston "12 slicer to arrive before slicing these slabs up. There were a few smaller ones and two of those are already gone for taste tests. The others will be given out as gifts. But these three larger ones are all mine.
I must say this is pretty good bacon, but the honey and maple flavor is more pronounced than I though it was going to be. I'm not sure if I don't like it better with just the molasses and maple, the honey is a bit sweeter than my usual product. The hickory smoke came through nicely and my wife liked it really well as did her granddaughter. I guess that's what counts what with it being Valentine's day and all. Besides she puts up with me spending all the time it takes to make it. When I borough it inside the whole kitchen area smelled like hanging bacon, nothing wrong with that!
