    I am NOT going to click on that button, I'M NOT!!

    ETA: apparently some stuff comes through when you quote, not the pictures though. I'm NOT going to look, I'm NOT. Besides, I'd probably get a migraine if I do since you use nitrate salt.

    1/8 teaspoon per lb. in boiled water then cooled. No other way to create real bacon. We have used regular salt and sugar but it tastes like pork, not bacon. The Ham will be grey without it as well and taste like a big fatty pork chop instead of ham.
    Used in a precise moderation. We smoked a ton of meat yesterday. Each cure was prepared Taylor made for each hunk of meat by the weight. Not one big batch all at once.
    Low levels, so take an aspirin and check it out! smiley_emoticons_ducken.gif

    it looks like you were clicking on my post while I was editing the BB code. I see the green emoji in the quote. That's what I was editing out. I must of inserted it by accident but I removed it to fix the code. It's working now. Bruce, do you buy store bought bacon or ham?:pop

    Only "uncured" therefore nitrate free. Migraines are not fun. The bacon brand I like best is "North Country Smokehouse Fruitwood smoked". Contents: pork, water, salt, Turbinado sugar, natural ingredients (whatever that is - spices of some sort), maple syrup. Not hard to find a package with a good lean to fat ratio, not true of some others. "Uncured" often contains celery salt which does have natural nitrates but I guess natural doesn't do me in like "man made".

    The ham I buy is Boar's Head Applewood uncured. I buy McKenzie bagged breakfast sausage.

    The nitrates are totally unnecessary.

    Awesome! Experiment. Be simple or be bold.
    Bacon wrapped country style ribs. First seared the ribs, then wrapped the hand cut bacon last.
