Busy day.
« on: April 10, 2021, 08:37:35 AM »
I have to start 12 pounds of bacon curing, and 4 pounds of Canadian bacon curing. Also, I picked up a 13-pound Prime packer brisket, which I need to prep to smoke tomorrow. I looked at the choice briskets at the same time and found that for some reason there was only a 40 cent a pound difference between the choice and prime.


I also have to make at least one dump run, and do some work in the koi pond.

Wow, just wow!  I have bacon maybe 4-5 times a year. I love it, but it is not on my heart-healthy diet menu.

The green chili bacon is dry-curing. The brine for the Canadian bacon is made and cooling. Pretty soon I have to prep the brisket for smoking tomorrow.

You are a busy guy, EM! I'll bet that bacon tastes second to none.

12 pounds of green chile bacon dry curing




7.5 pounds of Canadian bacon wet curing




The 13 pound prime brisket that is currently in the smoker




The excess fat that got trimmed off




Ready for the smoker
