    result only OK my belly was uneven thickness and exceptionally fatty. cherry in crepes is better than cherry bacon and over easy eggs! oh well it was worth the try.

    first, the flash of you, maybe in an open Hawaiian shirt, shorts with a cigar an hat smearing salt on your stomach as you sit by the pool.... ;-) Second, I have taken to curing my bacon longer. happened by accident, for some reason, we were delayed smoking off a batch of bacon for a couple of weeks. oh.my.goodness. I don't smoke my bacon after only a week now. 3-4 weeks now. the flavors in your cure REALLY have time to meld and marry the flavors of the meat and as you eat the bacon, you don't get all those flavors at once. it is like every time your teeth come together as you chew, it is a slightly different combination of the flavors that went into the pork. very complex and very yummy! if you have the chance, let it sit on the cure a little longer some time. it really is good.

    also, do you want cherry flavored as in tastes like cherries from a tree (of which there are several hundred flavors) or are you looking for maraschino cherry flavor? which isn't actually cherry at all. Maraschino cherries and jergens hand lotion have their flavor/fragrance from the same source, Benzaldehyde. and MAN is it good! it is sometimes known as Bitter Almond but, even that has several different flavors associated. so, if you are looking for maraschino, you want Benzaldehyde. It is hard to find. I used to carry it in essential oil form for soap making back when I had the soap business. imagine my shock when the DEA came to call.... turns out, Benzaldehyde is also used in the meth making process (as is lye which I was buying by the 55 gallon drum. just a few alarm bells, there).

    Man do I love this post. There seems to be a common belief that the wood of a tree will give off the smoke flavor of the fruit that it produces. I've never found that to be the case, to me it's just varying levels of smoke intensity along with some subtle undertones. I've never found apple wood to impart an apple flavor anymore than cherry imparts a cherry flavor, it's all just smoke.

    My favorite mix to date (at least for the cherry ice cream I make) is 2 parts Torani syrup, 2 parts sno cone syrup and 1 part almond extract. The almond extract really pumps up the cherry flavor.

    Lyons cherry fountain syrup is good as well

    I am sure you chimed in because I had nooooo idea of what to use.

    Be advised that cherry syrups and extracts vary wildly in their taste and quality from good to disgusting. My favorites so far are Torani Cherry Syrup and a house brand (First Street) of cherry sno cone syrup that comes from Smart and Final.

    I would think if you take a recipe that uses maple syrup and replace it with cherry syrup that that would be incredible I think I'm inspired for my next next batch of bacon

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
