Got done smoking the bacon last night and tonight we taste tested the results. The results of the taste test were, it don't make a difference how we smoke it at home as it is a far superior product to what we can buy. We use apple on all of it with hickory on half and maple on the other half. 2 liked the maple and 2 liked the hickory. Worst part was the wife talked to the older kids and they is both coming down tomorrow to steal the product. :evil:

Home grown smoked bacon is always better. What kind of brine and how long of soak time. Its never good to advertise to the family of what you've done as they will leave you with very little .

I use a brine Fuzz and I came up with years back that involves Mortons, water, sugar and a spice or two. 1 week for bacon and 2 weeks for ham. I miss Fuzz. :cry:

No Lie, Fuzz was a super fellow! Your meat prep sounds like it will be good. I like Hickory smoke better than Maple.

tt- Sounds like you had fun making bacon. Kids are supposed to eat you out of house and home. You'll just have to make more. It would be interesting to know how far away your apple and hickory wood comes from to get to you. I don't think Alberta is plush with either apple or hickory trees. Good luck and have fun making more.

P.S. I miss old G (fuzz) as well. He was a good guy :--)

Donny missed a chunk of bacon in the ham brine and it spent two weeks in there. I smoked it with Mesquite and it was quite good but a tad salty.
