Your link don't seem to work thou.

You think that's good,try using jowls next time.

campdude 02-24-2014 08:14 AM

I'd like some of that now for breakfast!

bbqgeekess 02-24-2014 08:15 AM

That looks so dang good! The quality of what you cooked looks like something out of a Charcuterie book.

Glad it turned out well for you! My brother said he had great success with it as well but he didn't take a picture. He has some more curing again.

I have some curing in the fridge right now and will be ready to smoke on Thursday.

Pork butt for bacon is AMAZING -- blows away any pork belly bacon I've bought from the store. I like the relative leanness of the pork butt as well. I fry it in some peanut oil. I get more meat for my dollar.

Btw, I only spend $1.45/lb on pork butt.

I'll have to try jowl some time .. how much does it cost per pound? I am guessing it is fattier than pork butt .. don't know how fatty the jowl is compared to pork belly though. Never bought or cooked a jowl before.

That looks delicious.

Yup, link is broken. This looks like a cool method though; I've never tried it but looks like something to add to my bucket-b-q list.

I would think the belly is fattier than the jowl. I know that the pork cheeks are an oddity because they are very lean yet incredibly moist; not sure if that carries over to the jowls though.

Damn that looks good

jhuyser, how long did you let those butts cure?

cholloway 02-24-2014 08:32 PM

BB bacon is good. Homemade Canadian bacon from pork loin is good also!
Hell, it's ALL good!

I want to try curing canadian bacon some time.

c farmer 02-24-2014 08:47 PM

Canadian bacon is easy. I do it all the time. Bbb is next on my list. I have a shoulder in the freezer? Maybe that will work?
