That sugar would help to offset the slightly overly salty taste of tenderquick only. I will try this next time.

Thank you.

Himalayan salt is pink in color but not to be confused with the pink salt used for curing that contains nitrites. Totally different.

I hot smoked at about 250* to 270* about 4 hours IIRC. I hit IT of 145 and pulled. Pic below is bacon and pork loin bacon (people call it Canadian) after hot smoking.

Hi
Home made bacon clearly superior. Not necessarily cheaper a one (definitely me) tends to buy a better quality of pork than used in the commercial products.
My post provides instructions & photos for my bacon. A lovely slightly salty but maple sweet bacon - great:

Definitely. In addition for bacon one needs pink salt number 1. Number 2 is generally used for products that are not going to get cooked - eg salamis, air dried hams etc

When I smoke mine, I like to keep the pit temps around 200 and pull when the internal temp hits 150...the bellies are usually on there a 2-3 hours.

Home-made bacon rules. My first batch, 10 lbs, from a couple of months ago is gone. It was a cracked pepper batch. I currently have another 10 lbs curing - this time a maple batch. I like to cold smoke at 80 degrees for about 5 hours. However with the weather warming up, the next batch may have to be a hot smoke.
