I've bought beef bacon from our butcher but he would never tell me what cut he makes it from. Thanks for the information I needed to try and make my own.

Great Looking Beef Bacon.

Reading Katz site on pastrami they say curing for up to a month and smoking for days. How do they do that?

They use a dry cute, which gets applied several times. The meat is held on racks so that there is never a liquid build up. Smoking in a smoke shed allows for a cooler smoke, often days or even weeks, it is the traditional way of smoking bacon and such. The curing salt prevents spoilage and the dry smoky air helps too

I am sure they will not divulge their process in making their "Pink Gold" but only give generalities of the process.

Dry refrigerated curing is dependent upon the thickness of the meat. It can be accelerated by brining and stitch pumping as done in in today's commercial applications.

As far as smoking for days, I have never smoked corned beef for days to make pastrami, but I can remember my grandfather smoked hams for days in the smokehouse. It was far from our smokers of today and it was a cold smoking process which was also part of his curing method.

This looks so good! It's strange there isn't more emphasis on beef bacon because of all the folks who can't or don't eat pork for health or religious reasons. Why isn't it marketed more? Don't think I've ever seen it for sale locally.

Bbq Bubba posted his pics of beef bacon on another site recently, maybe he will chime in and let you know how he did it.

I ask the meat manager at Ingles about beef navel. His first answer was 'what'. Then he said I must mean plate. Could he get it? No haven't seen it for years. He said about all they get now was 'box' meat. I'll keep trying.

Sounds delicious. Bravo!
We have some really good butcher shops in the area, I'm sure I can find some navel.
Putting that on my list when my Beast (brick smoker project) is done!
Thanks for sharing!

I make this for my brother in law who doesn't eat pork for religious reasons. Every holiday I smoke half a belly. I like the flavor but find that it is chewier than normal bacon and it has a thin piece of sinew that runs through it. Rather than making bacon, smoke it like a brisket without wrapping or a paper wrap. It's silly good.
