First bacon

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 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.
