My wife just invited all the family/friends to swing by for all you can eat Eggs Benedict Brunch with Home Smoked Back Bacon on Boxing Day.

Guess I need to get about 20lbs of Back Bacon on the go-Thanks Honey

The back bacon was good, but a little lean for me. I have a 10 pound pork butt in the fridge Im going to try buckboard bacon.

Going with a steep temp curve to gauge the impact on ultra lean back bacon.
Stalling the stall so to speak.

Normally I never exceed 160F smoker temps to an IT of 125F.

But today is a new day

Lots of ways to the desired result

Default Smoked Salmon

Smoked some salmon last weekend, first attempt. Turned out pretty good.Dry brine 4 to 1 ratio = 4 cups brown sugar, 1 cup salt. I used about 3/4 cup of salt. Brined for about 10 hrs, then dried on racks for about 4 hrs. After drying put in bradley smoker for 6 hrs, smoked for 5hs with maple. The last hour gave fillets coating of maple syrup & back into smoker for final hour. Next time I wouldn't bother removing skin, I did half the fillets skin on and half skin off.This was right off of Youtube . I will attach the link to video.along with a few pictures. Overalll I was happy with end product.
First 2 hrs 120 degrees F, Third and fourth hrs 140 deg F, last 2 hrs 170 deg F

Very nice Heater, I believe I have watched some of the same videos as you on youtube. I just haven't tried this out yet, but it is on my list.

Default smoker in garage

Does anyone do this? Other than the obvious hazards, any reason it wouldn't work? I have a WSM and would like to run it in winter season....

Just bought my first smoker yesterday. I am seasoning it today as we speak. It is the Masterbuilt sportsman elite 30" electric.
I am wondering if you all could suggest more recipes with ground venison ?
The meatloaf in the above post looks awesome!
I have never smoked before so the excitement level is very high right now.

Anyone have good leads for decent chunks of smoking wood? Chips don't last long enough for my liking.
