More Sunday Bacon

Discussion in 'Smoking Bacon' started by kingudaroad, Feb 9, 2009.

  1. Very simple cure this time with just salt, cure, sugar and black pepper. Cold smoked for about 12 hours with hickory.
    I finally found a local source for bellies at $2.49 per pound.

    That does look good in deed. I do have one question. Why not remove the skin prior to curing and smoking?

    Nice job! It's funny how things like making bacon are fairly simple but most people won't try making it. They'd rather get the crap from the store than wait a week for REAL bacon. [​IMG]
     
  13. Good question. I've tried it both ways. This is the second time I've done it this way. It was fully cured and very smokey. It seems the cure and the smoke have no problem penetrating that skin.

    I was going to make smokey cracklins until my wife saw some nips still attached and made me throw the skin away.[​IMG]
