    Bourbon added to bacon recipe??

    If I were to use Meathead's base recipe of simple bacon, and add a little bourbon to the mix, would the extra liquid mess with the curing ratios of the kosher salt and pink salt? I'm thinking maybe a Tbsp or 2 of bourbon.

    I'm no expert here, but I think if you cut down the liquid by how much bourbon you add the ratios should stay the same.

      Meathead answered this on the main site. He didn't recommend it, on account of what the Bourbon might do to the chemistry of things, given it is a cure and all.

      He mentioned basting with bourbon during the smoking process.
