Default Some Cold Smoked Back and Side Bacon...

This is the side and some of the back bacon from one of my Spot pigs..

dry curing the slabs...

some of the back bacon..

brine curing the back bacon...

ready for the smokehouse..

I made some Steakhouse Canadian bacon, pepper rolled bacon, jalapeno side bacon, maple cayenne bacon, garlic pepper onion bacons... I can't remember what else. lol

used my smokehouse to cold smoke the bacons...

I used a lot of the bacon during deer season but still have enough to last until the next butchering.

more about the bacon ... http://cowgirlscountry.blogspot.com/...ked-bacon.html

I smoked some bacon wrapped bacon during deer season too...

I'm up to my eyeballs in bacon... but it won't last long enough. :)

Thanks for looking!

My lord you are just perfect. Raising hogs, Smoking cooking, camping fishing. That is really nice looking pork.

What feed method on the hogs? Grain fed, restaurant leavings etc. How large were the hogs before they hit the smoke house?
