BuckBoard Bacon
 
On New Year's day, I started a Hi-Mountain BuckBoard Bacon cure on a pork butt. I rubbed it with the Hi-Mountain Cure as specified, and sealed it up with my Food Saver. Every day or so since, I turned the package over in my refrig.

Well, today was the 10th day, and I started the UDS early to smoke it. RO lump, and a stick of Hickory.

As per the instructions, I smoked it at 200-250F (depending on where you measure in the UDS) until I had 140F internal. I foiled it, and let it rest for an hour, then refrigerated. This evening, I got it out of the foil to be sliced.

After I sliced it up, I had 7 one pound packages made up with the Food Saver.

Well did you taste it?

jimdandysnyjim 01-12-2009 05:30 AM

very nice

jerrykr 01-12-2009 07:25 AM

Thanks, I have not tasted this one yet.

This is the second one I have done, and the first one turned out Great.

There are 3 spice/cure packets in the box, makes about 25 lbs total. One packet works out well for the average size pork butt.

Make sure you try the BBB cure on a pork loin. Just don't cure for as long. About 8 days.

BBB never lasts long around my house. That's why I do 4 butts at a time.

Besides, not worth cleaning the slicer for just one.

Jerry, your buckboard looks great! :biggrin:

cheez59 01-14-2009 06:12 AM

That does look god for sure. I have never tried BBB but it is now on my list.
So many goodies. So little time.:mrgreen:

jerrykr 01-14-2009 01:30 PM

OK, OK, OK! We had BBB and eggs last night. Excellent! The better half did up some extra BBB and I had a very tasty Bacon and Tomato samich for lunch today.

It is better than it looks in that last picture, cause I screwed up the white balance in the pic so badly! :eek:

Ya'll gotta give BBB a try if you haven't already done so!

Scrooge Fan 01-14-2009 01:58 PM

So, that really looks good. Ummmm bacon. How does it compare to a high quality, thick cut, commercial bacon? Is it worth the effort for improved taste, or is it just one of those things that you do just 'cause, like making your own beer, or your own soap?
