Makiní Bakiní on the 1822
« on: December 11, 2018, 09:12:01 AM »

Received a bacon box (Man Crate) for this past Fatherís Day, which included a DIY bacon kit.

At Costco the other day they had pork belly strips, which really surprised me, so picked up a 5# package.

Iím gonna be makiní me some bakiní

Because I can!

Cured in the fridge for seven days

Been using my ď1822Ē smoker lately (couple oí stacked MBHs) with a snake and a couple apple sticks

A little salty for my first try, but I think itíll be great in beans and on BLTs!

If I can get it thin enough (only have a sharp knife) may use it on some ABTs.

Bacon!


Dude, relax your chicken.

Really cool project on a really interesting smoker.  Is that what you use for smoking all the time?  I'd like to know more on how effective it is.  Finally, I make bacon once a year (over Christmas break) using whole slabs of pork belly.  It's really easy, and generally you don't the the too salty taste which is more likely when you're smoking strips of pork belly.

Thanks

I ran across the strips before a full piece, but it makes sense what you said

I like the 1822 because it gives me more room. For some reason  [emoji6]  I had some extra kettles and I liked what others have done with this setup

Iím sure itís not efficient because it drives and smokes like a 4-8-4, taking a little longer to get up to speed

But a little tweaking and sealing would go a long way. I want to get gasket material, and pop the sockets off the Ď78 so they donít disrupt the snake (the daisies are already off)

But fitting a couple racks, the bacon and the occasional small butt, it works for me

Dude, relax your chicken.

I just like the name you gave it "1822"

Looks great. I have gotten those from Costco, but I just throw them straight in the smoker. They are fantastic.
