This is another joint effort to smoke up something edible. While Tracey (Walle)and I were waiting for the pepperoni to get smoked up, we decided to do three buckboard bacons. I wasn't watching real close as he filleted and seasoned these. I did get a picture of a few of the ingredients he used. For those of you who don't know us, I put the liquid smoke in the picture just for grins. It isn't on the bacon.:msn-wink:

We vacuum packed them and put them in the fridge for a two week nap.
Took them out today and got prepped for the cold smoke.

I seasoned one of these with Mad Hunky (see if you can tell which one) and the other two with just restaurant black pepper.

They have been in the smoker now for 6 1/2 hours using my new AMNS (courtesy of BBally). Thanks Bob, it's working like a champ.

I don't know how much longer I'll leave these guys in there since they haven't changed color at all yet. I can easily get another 5 hours of smoke from the AMNS without touching it. The Smoke Vault has been holding steady at about 75 all afternoon. I guess that's cold smoking?http://www.smoked-meat.com/forum/images/smilies2/noidea.gif Thanks for checking out our makin' bacon post.

Sorry, I thought Todd was a member here. If not, he will be soon. The AMNS is short for the A-MAZE-N smoker. It lets you cold smoke even in a propane smoker like my Smoke Vault. It burns sawdust (in this case I used hickory). Quite the little tool for certain applications such as smoking cheese. Here's a link.

Took them out this morning, sectioned and wrapped and did a fry test. This is some good stuff!
