Bacon Jerky
« on: July 28, 2013, 09:51:27 am »
  Has anyone tasted or tried to make bacon jerky? We were at a local supermarket yesterday, & Johnsonville  has a bacon jerky that we purchased. This was delicious & seems like a natural for bacon. I have not yet made jerky, but would like to try making this.

Sounds interesting, I've done bacon before and I just sliced my first jerky and put it in a Teriyaki marinade for a couple of days till my frog mats come in. If you try it please post pictures and the method you use. I know we'd all like to follow your progress on it.

Guilty as charged.  I joined Rick's bacon jerky party in the thread Devo posted.  It is a long drying process but delicious when finished.

Sounds like an experiment for you Beefmann, I won't have any for a week or so and I don't have a dehydrator which seems like a necessity to keep from having a fat out.

I can't think of a reason you could not use beef bacon.  In fact it might dry a little quicker because of the difference in fat content in the beef bacon vs pork belly bacon.
