First Pecan Smoked Bacon Wet Cure
« on: June 30, 2013, 08:16:05 AM »
I just tried my first wet cure. we let it cure for about 10 days as it was just about 2 lbs. We got a recipe from a friend and we made a few (spicy) adjustments. We have been hearing that pecan is a great wood for flavor on some meats so we tried it on our first bacon. It turned out great! here is our recipe and our finished product. If you'd like a step by step process you can see it here: http://artisanbros.blogspot.com/2013...can-bacon.html. Let me know what you think! Thanks


(for 2 lb pork belly)

2 Tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons black pepper
2 Table spoons Maple Syrup (and don't be cheap, use the real stuff!)
Follow your directions for "curing salt"
1 cup water
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
