Buck Board Bacon in East Texas

Using Bearcarver’s Recipe

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/138526/buckboard-bacon-and-pulled-cured-boston-butt-ham

Started with a Butt from Sam's, de-boned and split it. Half for Buck Board Bacon the other for Cured Butt Ham

Rubbed with proper amount of T Q and Brown Sugar bagged and in the fridge for 8 days, turning each day

Day 9 out of the fridge, rinsed and soaked for about 45 min. patted dry seasoned with a little garlic powder and black pepper

on the drying rack and back in the fridge for a day.

Fired up smoker, pork butt out of fridge and let sit under a fan till smoker comes to temp.

Smoker at 125 º Put meat on, added pecan and maple chunks

Maintained 125 ° throughout entire smoke

Smoked BBB for 6 hours till IT was 120 º Pulled the BBB   and lat rest on the counter till IT

dropped below 100°

Wrapped in Plastic Wrap and back in the fridge for two days.

Put in the freezer for 3 hours to firm up for slicing.  Slicer and vacuum sealer or ready to go.

Rested in freezer for 3 hours, sliced great, I got 3 - one lb. bags and one 12 oz bag from half a Butt

Fried up a couple to see how it was   Wow .

Terrific bacon, Gary. You have to love the ratio of fat to lean.
