Makin' Bacon

Unread postby marinetrader » Mon Jan 07, 2013 12:55 pm

On the Patrica Ann, we take pride on being self sufficient. We grow a lot of our own vegetables, do most of our mechanical work and now, have another DIY item to add; makin' bacon. We have been asked by several friends and customers for the recipe...here it is.

OK...you got my interest...... Now do you reheat it in the oven,microwave, on the grill before serving it???
As I'm only a 5 min walk from my boat to yours.... Am willing to try it and give an "unbiased" report on this site.... :roll:

Five pounds of bacon would probably last me about two years!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

You don't end up with that much..... Nice thing is, you get to cut it as thick or thin as you want..... And surprising little amount of grease...

Must be bacon week. We grilled/smoked 3 lbs on the Egg last week. After low heat, we freeze the bacon. We put pieces in green beans. Couldn't put the Egg on the s/v too heavy.
