Still breaking in my new MES. So let's do bacon!!! Used Pops brine & Criags bacon the easy way thread. Here's what I started with

what

Into the brine for 14 days & got this


Couples days in the fridge to form the pellicle & got this. One is plain & the other peppered


Into the smoke


Couple hours of smoke with my handy dandy Amazen Smoke Genator & taking on some color


Heck of a time keeping it under 150 but 9 hours later got this


Back in the fridge for a rest for two days & then sliced


Nailed it on tatste


Bagged some up & into the freezer



This is my third time with bacon but OH MY GOOD !!
Thanks for looking

Looks great. Did you use Pops brine cure recipe exactly or did you adjust it?

Great looking Bacon, after you took if off smoker and put in fridge for a couple days, did you wrap it or cover it for those .couple days prior to slicing?

Thanks guys!

DS, yes all I used was the AMPS no other heat. Its hot in AZ so I didn't need any other heat

WAZZ, I did wrap it loosely as the smoke can overwhelm
