    Am I supposed to cook the bacon first, or put it in the food processor raw?

    Also, for all of you that have used the recipe, what kind of bacon did you use? Regular or maple or what?

    Thanks for the insight!
  2. Raw. I use home made bacon. But any bacon you like will work.

    Happy smoken.

    Bacon Butter Recipe
    ■ 5 strips of bacon, cut up into smaller pieces (1/2 inch or so)
    ■ 4 TBS of my rub (purchase recipe here)
    ■ 1/4 lb of butter (1 stick)
    ■ 3 garlic cloves

    Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and run it until
    the butter is smooth. You may be able to use a blender for this if
    you don't have a food processor but I have not tried it and I don't
    know how well it would puree that bacon.

    Happy smoken.
