Title: Cooking home cured bacon
Post by: zueth on February 02, 2018, 08:55:02 PM
I made some maple bacon and smoked/cooked in smoker until IT of 140. When cooking the bacon what have you found works best. I assume I can’t use the normal temps and times that I use with store bought bacon. Thanks

If it is a bacon with a lot of sugar, I either fry at a low  to medium flame, or bake it in an over at 350°F to the crispness I like.

I put the bacon in a non pre-heated oven at set it to 350. Ended up cooking for 20 minutes. The bacon had great flavor the texture was just firmer that I am used to. I am use to cuting bacon with a fork but that was t happening. The sugars on outside got slightly burnt but not bad. How does the texture compare for others?

Try checking the bacon at 15 minutes; or maybe at 10 minutes; depending on your desired doness.

Its funny because after about 16 minutes I checked and asked my wife if it looked done or if I should go longer and she replied it should go longer.  I shouldn't of listened :)  seems it doesn't take as long since it was already brought up to IT of 140 previously.
