Today was the first run of my big poppa smokers UDS. For both seasoning and experimentation reasons, I chose to start with bacon and a corned beef brisket.
To discuss the bacon first, I went with the amazingribs.com curing recipe and it worked out really well. Good appearance and good flavor, we're going to fry some up from brunch tomorrow.
The brisket was a pre-cured corned beef half brisket. I was lazy and didn't have the refrigerator space to cure it myself. It came out pretty well though, and had nice flavor.
Ok, that's all the pr0n you are getting from me this weekend. Enjoy!
