Buckboard Bacon Done W/ QVIEW

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Folks, if you havent tried this I highly suggest it if you like bacon or ham. I was a little nervous at first but now I'll be making this all the time. First off I had to track down some pork butts that weren't enhanced. I finally went to a carniceria, a mexican meat market and found some and they were priced right on. Once on the chopping block I used my Rapala Fillet Knife to work out the bone, yes a dirty old tackle box fillet knife, well scrubbed at least. If you don't fish I still would have one in the kitchen, best investment you can make. Once I got that bone out I coated them with Hi-Mountain Buckboard Bacon Cure following the instructions to the letter, except flipping it every day for the 10 days not just after five days like the instructions. I weighed the meat after digging out the bones and went by the formula. The only thing I did different was I dusted the meat with CBB. After the 10 day torture test I washed the meat with cold water very well and soaked in cold water for 1.5 hours. I then did the salt test. Perfect was the outcome. Now onto the smoker with a hunk of hickory and a kiss of mesquite, my favorite combo as of late.

How long dose it have to cook in the smoker? Where would I get a pork belly at? I am assuming the local wal-mart doesn't carry that.

You can get pork butts almost anywhere (grocery stores), but most people have to get a butcher shop to get you a belly.

 

 

Nice job meateater----Hmmm, I think I already told you that.

Now that's some good looking bacon you have there. You can't get enough Qview of some homemade bacon either. I'm calling for a round of BLT's for the house.!!!!!!!
