Default • It's Bacon time again! (a LOT of pr0n!!)

Freezer ran out... What to do? Make more of course!!!

Got a pork belly............. or 8


Unwrapped 2 and washed them up along with a boneless shoulder and a "money muscle" for buckboard:




Made my salt cure and mixed it with "wet sugar"




I put this on a slab of belly, and the 2 buckboards then bagged them up and put them in the fridge to cure:




Did up a herb rub for a Savory bacon, rubbed it and threw this one in the fridge as well:




After just over a week they came out the fridge & I washed and patted them dry then put them back in the fridge overnight to finish drying the outside:

Savory bacon:




Wet sugar cure:








Rolled and cut the savory bacon


Put it all on the smoker and cold smoked it for 4 hours with some Lychee wood:


Was a nice night to smoke...




After 4 hours cold smoke:








Then raised the heat slowly and brought them up to 140˚


And the final product the next day sliced up:












All stocked up again!!! Now what to do with it??

uhh FRY IT!!!!


It was goooood!!! Thanks for looking everyone!!!!
Cheers

Phrasty, you never cease to amaze me. I'm definately gonna try that cold smoke stage before going for the heat. You've got some beautiful colour there and I'm really impressed with those spice mixes in the cure.

Cheers Mate!

Why did you intentionally raise the tem,p at the end? I thought the idea was to keep it cold and let the cure and the smoke preserve everything....

LOOKS GREAT BTW!

Wow, Lychee Wood I bet that's good!!!! Lychee is my favorite fruit, but it's so hard to find in the US. Has such a great, sweet, fruit punch type flavor. I'm jealous.

It's because it was night time in Jamaica and that smoker is not a proper cold smoker. To get the best you can of the smoke in a hot country, you run a cold smoke at night to get the flavour in, and then finish it off with a hot smoke later on so you can actually eat it and live.

Bloody clever really!

Cheers!
