Bacon in my CG with the AMS.....never again....

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

....will I buy bacon from the store!  Well, that's what the family is requesting.  Makes a guy proud!

 

This was my second batch of bacon.  Basic cure from Ruhlman and Pollens book.  First time I did a cold smoke.  Used my AMS in my Char Griller. WOW WOW WOW......worked like a champ!

 

I mixed some hickory and apple dust.  Started it up.  Eight hours later....lovely bacon goodiness!

 

Can't wait to make the next batch!

Didn't take pics of the sliced bacon -- sorry!  It was sliced and packaged...well, fried and tasted along the way!  Turned out incredibly good.  I liked the combo of hickory and apple.  Mixing it in the big bag seemed to work.  

 

Like I said....I can't see buying bacon again!

Love the bacon - great looking bacon - looks like the AMS allowed you to do both the cheese and bacon at the same time - I had not thought about that - very nice

Going to pick up some bellies this morning.  

Cant wait

Nice looking bacon. I agree I'll never buy bacon either. Gonna track down a belly or two myself today.

Looks great John!

 

I just checked last week. I have a good bit of bacon left, but I still worried about running out of bacon while my tomato plants are still producing, so I odered a belly on Friday.  

That would suck if I had to buy store bacon!!!

 

Can't let that happen!

 

 

Thanks for showing the beautiful drool creating color,

Bear

Now that's some really good looking bacon you have there. I really like the color that you got with the a-maze-smoker thingy. I just did some bacon myself and it coming around this site with a quickness. Everyones doing bacon.

Thanks everyone.

 

You're right mballi -- lots of folks doing bacon these days.  It's so good, and really not that hard at all.  I've gievn some to friends and co-workers -- they can't believe how good it is.

 

And the AMS is just awesome -- Todd has a real winner there, and I'm so glad I got one!

Great Job John!!!

 

Good call to throw some cheese in on at the same time.

 

Looks like you started (1) end, was that enough smoke?

 

How Long did your 6x8 it burn on (1) fill?

Thanks Todd!  I'm eager to try the cheese -- but its wrapped up and resting for now.  I did start 1 end, and it worked great.  I smoked it for about 8 hours -- and there was still dust in there smoldering (I didn't really pay attention to how much -- but it was still smoking away).

 

One fill was plenty for the eight hours of this smoke -- more than I needed actually.  I mixed the hickory and apple together and used that mixture.  I like the flavor of that with the bacon.

 

Todd, I am so glad I bought the AMNS!!!!  It really is amazing!  Great product you have there.

John,

 

Now you gotta try "Buck Board Bacon"

 

Cure it the same way you cured your bacon.  I think it's tastes like bacon, but the texture is more like ham.  It's really cheap to make when pork butts go on sale for $.99/lb.
