Default Maple cured Hickory smoked bacon

Been working on this bacon recipe for quite a while after having ordered and fallen in love with Benton's. Real Maple syrup coating followed by curing slat mixture for 4-5 days. Rinse in sink for 90 minutes, set on racks and allow to dry in fridge for 2-3 days, Hickory smoke at 155 for four hours then at 200 for two more hours. Kids go bananas over the stuff.

Default Bourbon Maple Syrup

Two favorite things in my life, Bourbon and Maple syrup all in one. Feeling kinda Homer Simpson'ish.
