Yep its hard to go back to regular bacon once you have made your own. The only time I buy bacon now is to wrap around my meats to smoke. Job well done!PDT_Armataz_01_37.gifpoints.gif

Uh Oh, Looks like we trapped another one into our "Bacon Makin' Gang".

Good job poindexter!PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif


PS: Now that you know your camera works, next time how 'bout a pic of the sliced product, before wrapping. Having to look through the bags only causes me to drool out one side of my mouth. That aint right!

Well I kind of winged it I have a pound of tinder quick and 5 pounds of sugar cure and since I haven't found any recipes for the sugar cure i went with the tinder quick.

So I used one tablespoon of tinderquick per pound of meat.
I also added garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper and some white sugar I might have put other stuff in it but I dont remember then I put it in ziplocks and in the fridge flipping it every morning for ten days then smoked it to a internal temp of 145 with apple chips. I didnt really follow and directions just knew I needed to do 1 tablespoon of tinderquick per pound of meat and that was about it. It turned out great I didnt even have to soak the meat cause it wasnt too salty.
