    Smoking Bacon

    I think you want to stay with cold smoking,you don't want to cook your bacons in the smoker.I smoke mine at 135 until the internal hits 128-130 then take it out.Make sure to leave out the smoke until the surface of the bacon is well dried because a wet bacon will not take smoke right.To get a...

    looking for casing

    The collegian casings I have bought have holes in them for smoke penetration [gosh I love that word.]If yours don't have holes Id guess you could use a sausage pricker or a small needle and make your own holes.

    looking for casing

    I have made my own out of Muslin like Salmon said and it works pretty good and is a lot cheaper.The only thing I didn't like about it is it seems to leave a skin on the meat after cooking.I say a skin,maybe you would call it a rind but it is a thin layer of tough dry meat that was not for...
