Double Smoked Revisited
« on: May 20, 2022, 02:18:04 PM »
I tried a new version of double smoked meat counter bacon.  The objective was to expose the bacon to more smoke.  Instead of tying it into a compact shape, I layed them out in a grilling basket.  I also got a lot less work and a much shorter smoking time.  One handful of chips. Set the temp at 170.  Total time was 30 minutes.  Most of the chips were burnt by then, maybe 150 next time. The results were great.  I forgot the black pepper.

Ken - I have to try that.  Never gave a thought to double smoking bacon.  Thanks for sharing!

The bacon in the grocery meat case is usually a good value and often local.  For me, itís rare to get the smoke that I like.  This method really steps it up and the variety of wood to chose from is nice too.

Ken, that bacon looks really good. I think I will have to try using some counter bacon, too!

This is funny, because I first got turned on to double smoked bacon from the guys who run a local smokehouse. The stuff is terrific, like candy, it's all black and sugary and sweet, good warm or cold. Then when I got the smoker I decided ok I'm going to double smoke bacon, and I did the long way, using the recipes on here to first make smoked bacon, then slice it, coat it, rack it, smoke it again ... the results are terrific ... but then I talked to the guys at the smokehouse about it, and it turns out that they just buy the local produced smoked bacon, add the maple and sugar and spices, and smoke that! So this is definitely a good thing to try and experiment with!
