One of my other hobbies

My adult daughter is visiting from out of state tonight, so I'm currently baking a batch of foccacia. However, tomorrow or the next day I have to work on one of my other hobbies and smoke a batch of bacon that has been curing for about ten days at this point.


Past batches...


Spiced coffee bacon and cayenne bacon headed for the smoker


Spiced coffee bacon, post-smoke


Pepper-Rum bacon, post-smoke


Green Chili bacon headed for the pan

with bacon.


BTW, Have you ever made a "Bacon Explosion" ?

This is one of the early ones, maybe the original:

I think I learned about it on this channel:

Warning: that channel is childish, immature, and crude.  But they did have some "epic" recipes back in the day. And it has diminished from its former entertainment value.

Looks great!  What temperature do you take the meat out of the smoker?

Coffee bacon is criminally underrated! Glad to see another enjoyer :D
