Well I fianally got to try the bacon. Turned out really good, Buckboard cure for 10 days, soaked in fresh water for 2 hours. Smoked at 225 for around 5 1/2 hours. Temp.140. I want to thank everyone for all the help with this. It was my first time doing bacon and I'm so proud at how it turned out. A REALLY BIG thank you to Debi, for giving me the extra push to try it.
Congrat's Mike ....sounds very yummy!!! I bought the Buckboard bacon cure..... some time ago and have yet to try it, hopefully soon...maybe September
Sorry no pictures this time. My brother has the camera and he had to work.
Tonto1117: you should really give it a try, it easy to do, and it taste great. I have about 6 lbs. of bacon right now. MMMMMmmmmmm good. :)
Great to hear it all came out well Mike! You can do it! Everything is soo much better when you do it yourself. I'm proud of you!

Big Hugs!

Thanks Debi, so many people told me "heck it took you 6 hours I could just go to the store in 5 minutes. Yea so. But I MADE IT MYSELF!! People tend to forget that there weren't always stores around. I know what went into my bacon, do they. Plus I just made around 8lbs, of the best bacon for only 9.00 bucks, and I had a damn good time doing it.
... And that ROCKS! Keep that bacon comin I'm hungry

Congrats and Keep Smokin
Mike -

I get teased all the time and people roll there eyes and say there goes fanny Farmer - but you know what? I love what I do and even they love the food.

sppptt ....

sometimes I eat my smoked goodies at work just to hear them whine - especially things like ribs, pastrami, pulled pork ... LOL makes them crazy! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
