Look what I found

Stopped at the Grocery store on the way home..the boys were complaining that the jerky was almost gone….picked up a 12lb Brisket for 1.88lb and hit pay dirt with a couple of already trimmed pork bellies…Going to make some Jerky out the of the Brisket and Bacon out of the Bellies…(it is hard to find pork bellies around here..)

While trimming the brisket and slicing it for jerky I learned a valuable lesson today…..The flat will make nice strips of jerky (I prefer the strips)….but the point is as good as Nicks sense of national boundaries……Now it was a pretty good lesson cuz this is the first time I got to dissect an uncooked brisket and got to see just how the grain runs and why the point makes such good burnt ends…

See, there are other uses for knives other than burglars.

Here is a pic of the finished jerky made it with brisket…I now think I prefer brisket to Top Round…it’s got a real nice texture and chew to it and I like the strip…don’t know why the pic came out so dark but….

Ok I'm envious...I just have the cherry, peach, apple and orange..I'm about due for a wood order....might have to add some pecan and maple dust to the order...not only do they have a great product but they are super people to deal with.
Been a little busy today…here is the bacon drying after coming out of the Brine.

Here it is after the first batch of Smoke…

It’s got one more pan of smoke to go and then the temp gets bumped up….
Bacon is done

I cooked it way hotter than the recipe calls for..but it looks good to me...the color will get darker after it blooms and I will post some finished and sliced pics tomarrow.
