That's Great, and I agree with your wife----Bacon-on-a-stick is one of the Best Tasting things I ever Smoke. Right up there with Bacon & Smoked Prime Rib!!!
Smoked Bear's Bacon on a Stick yesterday..It turned out great..Wife loves Bacon and it taste like bacon..she just kept saying how good it was..great recipe..
Thank You for the Great Report, Marc!!!
Having tried a few of Bear's step by step recipes and succeeding I thought it was time to try the bacon on a stick recipe. The reviews were great. One person even said his wife called them the best ribs he'd ever made.
Well, what do I have to lose?
So I followed the directions (perfect, by the way) ,cured, and then smoked two racks up yesterday. Easy, peasy.
Sure enough my neighbors and wife loved them. MY wife said they were the best ribs she'd ever have, and she's a RIB gal. I have requests to make them again, REGULARLY !!!
So, you've done it again. Excellent recipe and Step by Step.
Thanks from all of us down here in Texas.
Thank You Justin!!Been wanting to try this for a long time, my only regret is not trying them sooner... This is an amazing recipe. Thank you Bear for sharing this, much appreciated. The fam loves these & we will be making this again soon. Nice SBS buddy!
I wouldn't wait too long, because I believe the cure can disipate over time--How long, I don't know, but I would get it done within a couple weeks after curing.
Rather than PM Bear, I decided to put this question here for all to see. I tend to work 7 days a week. Seldom do I have 3-4 days forewarning before a day off. When I do get it, the weatherman is not co-operating.
Is there any reason I should not cure and freeze until I have time to cook ? I see no reason I can't but more experianced hands may know better than I.
I am hopeing to start the cure tonight (Monday) and cook Friday. Rain in forecast, but too far out to be that sure. If I get rained out, I want to freeze and cook at a later date.
Once you get it out of cure, you could keep it in the Fridge a few days before smoking too.
I plan to follow the step by srep to the letter. Freezer is just a failsafe in case weather interfers. Nice to know I can leave in cure longer, but the She-Beast will have a fit if I wait that long to cook it.
That's Great !!
OK Checking back in. They have been in cure since wednesday night (now saturday night). I rinsed, soaked, and test fried. OMG... it takes might near all my will power not to keep whittleing on them and "test Fry the whole rack. This is going to be awesome.
I had intended this to be an experiment, for my consumption only, til I knew how it came out. But the youngest daughter spotted them in the fridge and invited herself and her boyfriend for ribs tomarrow night. not knowing how it might be recieved, I thawed more ribs and whipped up some of Disco's Memphis Rub. Got them in the fridge chillin til I get off work tomarrow. Sorry folks dinner is going to be a late affair !
