Greetings from Mid-Michigan

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have been a long time lurker of this forum almost borderline stalking... I have been smoking and cooking whole hogs for a long time, thought might as well get into doing pig parts too. This is my first time attempt at some BBB. I used Morton's tender quick,light brown sugar and black pepper. I put them in the smoker for 6 hours with Hickory chips and chunks. Char-Broil Propane smoker..

Howdy, how long did you let the BBB Cure?. Dont get me wrong, it looks really good but, it almost looked like you applied the TQ and seasoning just prior to putting in the smoker and I am just trying to clarify for any newer people wanting to make bacon the right process. Welcome from MI.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

thanks for the nice words... I live by Caro and when I do another batch I'll use more sugar or dark brown. I let it dry cure for 6 days.
