Cottage Bacon this time...
« on: 04/23/23 13:29 UTC »
Pork shoulder, boned, cured with brown sugar and Morton's Tenderquick and smoked to a delightful color. Its cooling now before hitting the fridge for a couple days to mellow before slicing.

That looks good. After you slice that Tom, do you use it like bacon and fry it or do you make sandwiches out of it? We do pulled pork with Boston Butt in the south.

I cook it like regular bacon but because most of the fat cap has been removed, a little butter when frying the leaner pieces helps.

Once in a while I'll grab a smaller butt to smoke and pull.

Man that looks good, but I bet it elevates the blood sugar! LOL

I'll be doing this again soon. Super good bacon. Not very salty nor too sweet. Smoke level is just perfect.
