    Same here. We do 16-20 pounds, and the neighbors smell it over the fence and submit their orders to my wife before it's even off the smoker!

    Great bartering tool...

    I love this recipe so much. In the past 5 months. I've almost always had a belly on cure or in the fridge. Most of it i share with family and friends. Its a huge hit!! Looks like yours turned out awesome. Well done.

    Public, ugh! That's way too much work to get all the accounting in order. There's the SEC fees, public filings... yuck!

    That bacon, though, is pretty darn amazing!

    Bacon on the Slow n Sear

    So the last of my "test" cooks on the Slow n Sear happened this morning. I started out last week with an approximately 14-lb pork belly

    In the past, I've broken it up and frozen some slabs and then cured and smoked as it was wanted. This time, I decided to cure and smoke the whole thing and then freeze the cooked bacon. I had to break this down into 3 slabs even for the cure because it was too wide for the standard 11" Foodsaver bags.

    Followed MH's maple bacon recipe since everyone loves it. Cured for a week. Here it is after being rinsed.

    Then I realized that it was too big to fit all three slabs across my kettle. Luckily, I've got a Hovergrill Cooked at about 250 with some apple wood chunks. I knew the higher grate would be hotter, so I probed one of the lower slabs and the upper slab. Top slab finished only about 10-15 minutes quicker.

    And the two bottom slabs - no appreciable difference

    And the first slice.. The ends taste so good with that extra carmelization. This slab is a bit fatty, but oh so good both fresh and when cooked up. (From previous experience I can tell you that not only is this good for breakfast with eggs, but it makes a great bacon cheeseburger.)

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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
