My first buckboard bacon w/q-view

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My first buckboard bacon came out great using the Hi Mountain Buckboard bacon cure, thanks to everyone here. I was probably a bit excessive with my trimming of the pork butt, since I ended up with three pieces, but it came out okay anyway. After curing for 14 days (2 days longer than recommended), I smoked it on my WSM to 140 degrees. It is a bit salty, perhaps the extra 2 days of curing? I think I'll try a loin next. The three pictures show the pork butt after curing, but before smoking and then after smoking and then sliced after smoking. The flavor is awesome!

Nice thorough cure. You could try a soak in cold water for a day if it's THAT salty. And leave some fat. Hard to fry without it. Then again, you can add a bit of EVOO to the pan too...more healthy, eh.

On edit: Gotta watch temps with EVOO... "low and slow" - as it were.
