    Family Bacon

    My niece and nephew both calf rope and are always on the lookout to raise money to be able to make as many rodeos as possible every year. They approached me and asked if I would help them make some bacon as a fundraiser to help with their entry fees. They did an awesome job! They made and sold 72 pounds of salty goodness!!

    They started out using my dry cure, giving the bellies a nice thick coating, and then into the refrigerator for about a week.

    One week later and it's time for a nice coating of coarse black pepper, a 200 degree smoke bath for a few hours, then back into the fridge to get nice and chilly (overnight) before slicing the next afternoon. They did an outstanding job!

            Dang, that is a lot of bacon. Congrats on the great fund raiser idea - my kids always sold candy or popcorn or something. If they had a bacon fundraiser, I would have bought it all up.

                  Now that is one sexy pile-o-meat! Looks really delicious. Have you shared your dry cure recipe? I have only ever used meatheads wet cure method...would be interested in trying bacon with a dry cure. Obviously if its proprietary then dont worry, totally get it.

                    Brilliant idea by your niece and nephew for a fundraiser. Who doesn't like bacon. They definitly know their audience/demographic. Not to mention the "favorite uncle" status achieved with the bacon assist.

                      Fantastic and you must have a professional slicer. I can get slices only half that long on my slicer.
