First time bacon smoked

Post  Treegje on Mon Nov 17, 2008 8:30 am

Hello

I use beech and oak with Cades in it.
And on top a smattering fresh rosemary and thyme

I have made an iron basket
I tried to start it with a small gas burner in the angles
But that did not work, it always extinguished
Then I started 1 coco’s briquette and pushed him in the middle
This worked very well

The basket filled with sawdust and fresh rosemary and thyme





After 1 basket of smoking



The ready product, after 4 full baskets and smoke for 12 hours



After 2 days dry this is the result





This time I have been to the butcher for salted bacon
The next time I will try it my self
Now I used the water pan, half filled with cold water
I think the next time I uses no water pan
The temperature has not been higher than 90 F 32 C

wow that looks pretty impressive...and I say that whilst eating a toasted bacon sandwich. Luckily quality smoked bacon is easy to come buy in my neighbourhood but I must say that your butcher seems to have supplied you with some nice cuts. Looks great
