Bacon makin time!

Post by Jim » 03 Jun 2019, 15:18

I was trying to rhyme, forgive me. :LOL2:

After my Bacon Burnt ends adventure, I decided to kick it up a notch and make my own bacon. I ended up buying a slab of pork belly and the adventure has begun. A little research on Google brought me to this website: https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles ... own-bacon/

I decided to try this exactly as he said, let's see how it turns out.

The ingredients..........

That is too funny!

So every day when I get home from work, I massage and flip the bacon as the article says too. My wife thinks I'm crazy, because I talk to it like I do my vegetable plants. :LOL2: :shock:

So, there was enough salt in there to kill a horse. The middle pieces were ok, but the ends......way too much salt. I wonder if i should of rinsed it longer before smoking it. Thoughts? Tips?

rinse longer would be my guess to get all the salt off. Might even want to use less salt next time. i know with country ham that is salt cured you have to soak it for a couple of days before you cook it.
