one of the local markets had butts for $.99 so i picked up a couple.........

after 10 days with high mountian BB cure i made one 1/2 butt into pepper:


and the other i used my standard homemade rub:


then i smoked them with hickory using the amazing smoker do-hicky:






and here they are all sliced up.....i was goin to get the slicer out but there wasn't that much........it's a full size commercial slicer........i'm pretty good with a knife.........ah hell, i'm just plain lazy!

the peppered:



and the rubbed:


had breakfast for dinner and both came out good even though the temp got away from me when the afternoon sun came over and hit the smoker.....cold smoking in az in the summer has it's challenges!

Is that your knife work???? I thought that was too uniformed for the knife. But it looks fabulous and I bet really tastey too.

You don't need to worry about him - he is not going to go get ya - that is why he has a pit bull and in my case he got me with a kitchen table trap

Great Job Rob!

Do you share treats with your Pitty?

Which bacon did you prefer?

todd, she's an english BT and some how, some way, she seems to get hers. as for the bacon i think i liked the peppered better for all around flavor but the one with rub was great on a BLT. i will say the AMAZING SMOKER is just that. i have a vertical gasser that i put it in and turned the flame to it's lowest setting and lit the AMAZING SMOKER on both sides and it worked great! i had been putting off making bacon cuz it is hard to cool smoke here when the outside temp is 115 and the internal temp on an unlit smoker can be 130+ sometimes. the AMAZING SMOKER  made it easy and i will say if you don't have one guys.........get one.
