I Have Made Bacon :)
#1
I found and attempted a procedure for making bacon that uses low heat in the oven for the drying process. This makes it more amenable for home cooks because it does not involve complex temperature control and smoking.



The cure is a dry rub that happens in the refrigerator. I cut the pork belly and used freezer Ziploc bags in the refrigerator to save valuable space.



I used the procedure from here:

Bag 'em: tandoori + chilli on the left and oregano + thyme + rosemary on the right.

Cured and rinsed.

In the oven for 2hrs at 200°F.

Done. Cool it, bag it and refrigerate or freeze it.

Live with honor, ride with truth.  Be friendly to others.  But always carry a gun on your side and a knife in your boot because there are those that do not feel the same as this.

Message of Insight and Unity 

We go into the wilderness to fulfill our hearts and empty our minds of life's garbage.
The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

"And can I say something else?"
Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........

The tandoori powder + chilli did not turn out very spicy. I think I'll add diced Scotch Bonnet peppers instead next time <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

I'm thinking about it some more now too... howzabout a Walker's Wood Jerk slather version - HMMMMMMM? <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/whistling.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':whistling:' />



Rigth now, I prefer the herb ones. It's REALLY good. Also on the list is garlic and chives...





Looking at the numbers, I can get pork belly with some rib on it for $2.39/lb. Supermarket bacon is at least $5/lb. I'm not picky. I think supermarket bacon is great also. One can make it for about half the price though.



In conclusion, you can get:

Its probably my age that makes people think I am an adult.
