    First attempt at Buck Board Bacon. The second half is drying right now to go in the smoker later tonight. This bacon is apple smoked. Tonight will be apple with hickory.

    Couldn't wait so I fried some up. Very lean compared to belly bacon.

    Looks great ! ------->>[​IMG]

    I'm a sucker for any kind of bacon!

    I'm guessing that is a pork butt shoulder split in half ??

    You're right, BBB is soooo lean, you have to be careful not to overcook it.

    Thanks,

    Glenn,
    Points for some Awesome Looking BBB! [​IMG]

    Because BBB is lean, I actually put a little oil in the pan before I fry. Same thing with my Breakfast Sausage and Italian Sausage, kinda lean.

    I think BBB tastes somewhere between "Side Bacon" and "Ham".

    Pork shoulder sliced about an inch thick so the cure would be certain to penetrate. This was my first attempt so I was a little worried. Turns out I had no need to worry. Cure penetrated very well. I probably could have rinsed a little more. And maybe done a second coat of brown sugar and cracked pepper.
    Probably had the frying pan a little too hot. It seemed to start burning before the fat started melting.
    But...to answer the question. It is fantastic! Much better than store bought.
