First bacon Qview

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My first attempt at bacon from a hog I butchered last weekend. Did the bellies and jowles with Mortons sugar cure for a week . Did a cold smoke for 2 hours with hickory ,apple ,and sassafrass. cooled and put in freezer to stiffen up before trying to slice . Here is how it came out, will try it for breakfast tomorrow

I made the hooks out of some #9 wire. Had made them up to smoke deer loins . I just got the slicer several weeks ago ...alot of elbow grease but it sure works nice

Tony111, that homemade bacon looks awesome! Nice job!!

That slicer is pretty cool. Looks as if you sliced the stuff pretty thin. Happy frying!

You did a great job on that bacon. Got it squared up nice. Nice equipment too.

The slicer is a Hobart 411, and is old as the hills but works fine .The wife found it in the classifieds about a month ago. the guy wanted $200 for it ,but I got it for $180. Had to do lots of cleaning on it and the sharperner is missing....oh well. It is a very heavy piece of equipment , like all the rest of my antique processing eguip.
I found lots of slicers on Ebay but the shipping is a killer. Good luck to you
