Default Beef bacon???

Absolutely! Took 2 - 6# beef navels, trimmed of all extra fat and cured for 7 days.
Soaked out and air dried overnight to equalize the cure.
Smoked over hickory until 150*.
Rested, sliced and cooked on the flattop.

Outstanding!

Mighty pretty bacon!

Did have a "bacon" flavor or a "Pastrami" flavor??

Thanks,

TIM

Will keep my eyes open though.

Interesting.

There is a small commercial smoke house near here that does beef bacon. That's the only place I've ever seen it.

Yours looks great!

You can buy beef bacon in the grocery store here (gwatney brand) but yours looks much better.

Outstanding!

Beef navel was the original cut used for Pastrami in many of the old Jewish delis in New York
