Nice work on the streaky beefy bacon Al.
Well thanks to our old friend Robert @tx smoker
I have a nice piece of beef belly, CPB of course.
That is generous gesture to a really nice couple, Robert.
The weather has not been cooperating , it’s been hot & I want to cold smoke this.
You're welcome for the cooler weather, Al.
My son and his girlfriend came down for a visit and we blame them for bringing winter with them.
We figured out thru trial & error, that beef bacon needs to be cooked slowly in the oven. We fried a test piece & it was like fatty jerky. So we cooked it in the oven at 350 for 30-40 minutes. It came out crispy & tender. The big difference is this stuff is a flavor bomb.
I learned that the hard way too.
I pan sauté at low heat with a bit of added bacon grease.
Fresh made bread, tomato from the garden, lettuce from the garden, & homemade beef bacon. Dang I guess I’ll have to start making my own mayo!
Happy that Judy got the tomato going.
I will only reluctantly eat a BLT from a store bought tomato.
Oh man, maybe I can sell the "third" fridge as the shop fridge.....Yea yea.....LOL.....
I just barely get by with 2 full size plus an upright freezer at home.
Down here is a crappy side by side and it gets full fast.
