Default Smokehouse Bacon

I raise my own pork. Recently it was time to process a couple of them.

This is the side and one loin from one pig...also one ham (the ham is still in the cure)



I use my little smokehouse to COLD smoke the bacon. :)



First I dry cured the bacon slabs for one week, Then divided the slabs into 4 pieces....
I made a peppered bacon..



A pepper/garlic rolled bacon...



A maple bacon...



And one jalapeno bacon....



I brined cured the back loins and made one black pepper canadian bacon, One steakhouse pepper bacon, and one maple bacon with a cayenne kick...




I cold smoked at 65 degrees using a mixture of hickory and apple.






I also cold smoked a bit of cheese, come whole black peppercorns, a bit of clover honey, some pecan halves, black olives and a kosher salt/white pepper/garlic and onion mix...
These were smoked for 7 hours, the bacon cold smoked for 17 hours.






The cold smoked bacon ready to wrap and chill before slicing and cooking....




Hopefully, (in a day or two) I will post pictures of some of the sliced cooked bacon.

Magnificent Cowgirl. Absolutely magnificent.
Since you have joined us here you have regaled us with incredible meals, experiences, Q toys, etc...
And it leads me to ask you a question that no one has asked to my knowledge:

Are you independently wealthy or something?

They all look great, but the sound of jalepeno bacon makes my mouth water. Can you elaborate on that?

Sitting here at my desk, stealing time from my boss, I can just about taste bacon - that looks so good. Likewise the Jalapeno bacon tweaks my interest.
