First bacon tastes like a success w/qview....

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
First bacon and my first qview, hope everyone enjoys. I followed the method from the thread "bacon using instacure #1" as the cure i purchased was the same sodium nitrate content. Cured in the fridge for 7 days and took care of the rest today. I smoked it hot due to the fact i cannot keep my temps down below 225 in my first smoker, guess its time for a new one as ive had the smoker for 2 months and im already attempting bacon. Seems to becoming a good hobby that deserves some good equipment. Anyways heres the pics!

Heres the bellies outta the cure, soaked, rinsed and drying.....



Profile shot after curing.....



Frying up a strip to test for saltiness.....



Gotta give some to my toughest critic.....



and a few shots after smoking, couldnt keep it in as long as i would have liked due to temps, but oh well, my first time.....

Looking good. I hot smoked my first batch because I did them the same time as a bunch of ribs and it turned out great.

Looks like a good job from here. The side shot shows nice red color. When you take a fresh cut through the middle of one of those pieces, if it's still red (not brown) in the center, the cure went all the way through.
Tasty isn't it?


Thanks for the Qview,
