Curing My Own Bacon

BBQ RecipesBBQ Tips
November 13, 2012

Curing and smoking a fresh side of bacon is on my to do list for the next few weeks.

I like to use a maple brown sugar cure and soak the fresh pork belly for 4 days. Once it comes out of the brine it needs to to sit and air dry for 30-45 minutes.

Then it’s ready for the smoke. I run my smoker at 140 degrees with apple wood and it usually takes about 6 hours.

I slice it on an electric slicer and vacuum seal it for the freezer.

I’m going to create a video and a full recipe for smoking fresh bacon – so be on the look out for that!
