First bacon

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I used Bardley cure with 3 variations. One I bagged and added brown sugar salt and water then bagged for ten days.

Another I used carry alongs and used Bradley brown sugar and maple syrup.

The last is dry cure only!

Too salty! Put in a rinse to soak!eek.gif

The dry cure went on soak in the fridge. The two wets are on!


The one on the far right was cooked by accident on my grill while drying. Looks like bean bait to me!icon_redface.gif

The end

I have noticed I have uneven smoke in my smoker. Some was over smoked and some was just right. Guess I have a ways to go to learn my smoker.

Man, all of these bacon smokes are scaring me, I am afraid if I ever try it I will only eat my own bacon.
