« on: October 15, 2010, 05:38:15 am »
Been awhile since i made bacon jerky.

Being i made the bacon awhile back i went this route with it for the jerky. 12 hours at 70*

Gonna be watching this with great interest.  Would love to make some of it.  Rick, just curious.  Why 12 hours at 70 degrees?  Obviously you have no concerns about the bacon being at that temp for that many hours.

This sounds just too good.  I'm going to have to make some of this I can already tell.

WOW, bacon jerky..    Wait 'til I mention this to the guys at work.   They'll soil themselves.

What happens to the fat?

Low slow temp cuz i want to dry the bacon. If you go high your going to fat it out.

I was right!  Just got clearance from sous chef Jan that bacon jerky is definitely on the agenda for this weekend.  Time to fire up the Excalibur again.

SWEET! 8)

6 pounds of bacon in my frig.  I'm thinking bacon jerky dusted with Head Country rub.  Anyone got an opinion on that flavor combination?

This will get interesting I'm sure.
