Got the cold smoker going for some bacon.
The bacon is cured in a brine and brown sugar solution over 3 days, no curing salt. It is rubbed with crushed pepper before smoking, smoked with hickory pellets at 90°f for 7 hours.


I am confused.

When you say it is cured in brine, what is in the brine if there is no salt? 

Technically a brine is based on a salted water medium.

Yes, there is a cup of salt as well, of course!

Key word is curing salt.  Totally different product to ordinary salt and quite dangerous in the wrong hands.  It is used to stop the growth of anaerobic bacteria during the curing process.

This is my pack of it.

Could not get any Jalapeños so using hot Thai chillies to see how they go. Using a couple of lumps of apple to start with then apple/cherry pellets for convenience of a low slow smoke.

Will be in the dryer when finished smoking.

1.5 kilo of chillies for the record, cheers Robert

There in the dryer now so will see how they go.

Rest of the chillies I did 1 and 1/2 jars pickled and should get a few small jars of chillie jam.

Did a bacon today from a piece of boneless shoulder. Looks good just need to let it cool down. Will be ok to try for breakfast tomorrow.
