    So after seeing all the Buckboard Bacons being done here, I just had to try it for myself. So I ordered a box of Hi Mountain cure/seasoning and cut up a Boston Butt into 3 pieces. I somehow managed to survive the 10 days of curing without getting impatient (probably because good bacon is worth waiting for) and on to the UDS it went last night. I ended up doing one rubbed with black pepper and left the other two alone. The results were fantastic! Wifey fried some up with some eggs this morning and we were in love with it. I suspect store-bought bacon is going to be a thing of the past for us. Now I really need to get a slicer. [​IMG]

    Wow! That is some fine looking bacon. Makes me want to go to the store and yell at everyone buying bacon there and tell them about how good yours looks but I would probably get arrested.

    Texas Pete's is good stuff. A real nice mild hot sauce. I can get bulk sizes if you need it. :)

    Thanks Dawn!

    Good looking bacon! I haven't tried making it myself yet, but after seeing yours I may have to pick up a cure kit.[​IMG]

    Fantastic!!!! Thanks so much for posting this. My brother and me are going to do up some ribs, and beef roasts tomorrow while watching college football. However, this WILL be a project for me next week (at least getting them curing)!!

    If you have a second, could you tell us what temps you smoked at?

    Again, thanks for posting!! [​IMG]

    Man that looks delicious.

    [​IMG]for sure.

    what was your final internal temp and do you still fry it afterwards like a regular store bought bacon?

    Thanks for this. You make it look easy.

    I just broke down and bought some store bought bacon becuase I was out of bacon grease....and I am out of buckboard...seeing this makes me remeber how good that stuff is. and way better for ya....good work

    I think running out of bacon grease is the only draw back to grinding your own meat. there is just not enough fat for you to keep up on grease. oh well a good problem i figure

    I am waiting for a response also but I don't think you have to smoke it, although I think he did, I think you can cure it and then fry it also.

    I have used the same cure to me homemade Canadian bacon and the wifes 3 brothers were amazed that I made that at home and it tasted so good, they thought I bought a ham somewhere and was serving that.
