Default Home Made Maple Bacon - PR0N

14 pounds of pork belly trimmed down to 10 pounds by removing skin. I used Ruhlman's cure from his book that included nutmeg, bay leaves and thyme. Maple syrup was an amber grade. I cured the bacon for nine days and then left in the fridge overnight to form the pellicle. I cold smoked it in the BWS Party for five hours using apple and hickory in the Amazen pellet maze. As you can see, the maze lasted right at five hours.

This bacon is amazing and I like it a lot better than the first batch that used peppercorns for flavor.

Cooked some of this up and it is simply amazing. The cure recipe is highly recommended.

Bacon looks awfully good. I have never tried the maple when I make bacon. I do make maple sausage and that is really good so maybe I should try it!

Looks great! Homemade bacon is awesome and just not that hard to do. I think the hardest part is to get a good pork belly.
I recently did a similar cure/smoke and loved it. The bacon ends up with serious flavor. I did a maple chunk and one with garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and a sprinkle of cayenne. The one with cayenne was my favorite. Just don't overdo it with the cayenne.
Thanks for the post! :)
