Home cured Bacon

Post by kaywoodie » Mon Feb 29, 2016 8:38 am

Ok. Them that was at Neches Bluff GTG remember that oldest boy of mine that showed up. Well he's been butchering hogs on his place and putting up hams and curing bacon.

Yesterday he finished this batch of smoked bacon!

I was over helping him hang a pasture gate yesterday morning. But before we got out, we had a big pile of this bacon and some home made bisquits. I can attest that the boy outdid himself on the bacon!!!!

Ohhhhhh boy! I bet it was so good. How big does the pig need to be before you can get bacon from it?

Oh big is better. I suppose it depends on just how much bacon you want. These are not wild hogs. They too lean. This are farm raised hogs he has. I don't know of this came off one of his Berkshires or if it was off a red wattle. Wattles tend to be more of a meat hog. Not near as lardy.

Both them honyocks tuned out to be pretty good makers of good eats!

The younger makes kick azz biltong!!! I just can't chew it with these bad choppers of mine!!! :D
As well as other culinary delights for the discriminating hunting camp.

Built a big pot of jambalaya or whatever at Neches Bluff. Used a bunch of Marmaduke's deer and hog sausage. Turned out purty good. I know Justin (Alpha6) made off with a link!!!!

It's good to see those stalwart young scions bearing the good fruits of a propper upbringing.
