Guanciale is fantastic. It's difficult to find even in Italian neighborhoods here.

Some say a true Carbonara must be made with Guanciale, not Pancetta.

Check this out. It's not KY bacon, but was made by a KY girl. It came out pretty darn good.

Got a couple more bellys in the fridge cureing. I changed up the recipe a bit. I added some chopped garlic. I also cut down some if the brown sugar. Used maple syrup instead. I have a friend from out east that got me some "real" maple syrup. I also used some sea salt. A friend on another forum posted this recipe so I kind or ran with it. Just put my own twist on it.

https://www.smallfootprintfamily.com/how-to-cure-bacon

I measured out the cure and salt according to the recipe. Every thing we used for flavor we just kind of dumped until it looked good.

Did some loins also for "Canadian bacon" Smoke will be on sunday. We will be using a gas smoker an electric one as well as a wood fired smoker.

The jowl used in the Speck Karen made was originally destine to become guanciale. After years of searching locally and just on a whim, we finally found guanciale next door to the Farmer's Market we got the jowl at on the same day. Glad we did because that Speck is awesome. I agree that Carbonara should be made with guanciale! Pancetta is great for many things including Penne alla Vodka!

Bacon was a success. Used pecan wood for smoke. It has a more mild smoke. The loins came out really good also. Click image for larger version

The gas smoker and the wood fire did better than the electric. I am really liking my gas smoker. I am old school and always used wood but using gas I didn't have to babysit it constantly.

Those aren't loins. I can tell.














Runs and hides

and pork belly or loin., bacon, brown sugar, morton quick salt, recipe

Makin' bacon. My brother added me to a new group on Facebook called makin' bacon. So off to costco I go to get a pork belly. A buddy of mine brought over a pork loin for Canadian bacon. The recipe we used is in the pictures. The pictures of the loin is after 24 hours. The first flip. We will use an electric smoker the first time just because its more dummy proof. That and its cold out right now. I dont want to have to babysit the fire constantly. Its going in the smoker in 8 more days 3 stars 1 reviews
