cmpphotoinc Ok I sliced and cooked some of the coffee cured this morning. Came out pretty good. Slight hint of coffee and cinnamon on the back notes, very sweet up front.

cmpphotoinc So here's the coffee flavored after curing. Again the cure was seven days in the fridge with sea salt brown sugar, Italian dark roast coffee and cinnamon.... hoping for a slight hit of a cappuccino. Going to let it rest over night and try it in the morning. Will post results then. #bacon #homemade #coffee #cured #meat 3mon

cmpphotoinc Ok so here is attempt number two. Sriracha on the left and sun dried tomato on the right. The flavors came through nicely on both, but I lowered the salt to much. The result is a bit of a smoked rib flavor. #bacon #homemade #cured #meat 3mon

cmpphotoinc Fresh off the smoker! The sun dried tomato defiantly changed the color of the meat. Hopefully the flavor is there. Will let you know tomorrow... good night all. #bacon #homemade #cured #meat 3mon

cmpphotoinc Ok guys, here's the second go at curing my own bacon. This time around I cut the salt and raised the brown sugar. The first go came out a bit salty. The larger piece is a salt, brown sugar, black pepper sun dried tomato cure. The smaller is salt, brown sugar, five spicer, black pepper, kaffir lime and SRIRACHA cure..... what?! #bacon #cured #meat #homemade #organic 3mon

cmpphotoinc Well here it is... organic home made bacon. Not to shabby for my first go. I need to play with the cure mixtures, both were a bit salty and the maple was not quite as flavorful as I'd hoped. The cracked pepper corn will be great on sandwiches. All and all still better than store bought, and healthier with out the chemical cure. #bacon #meat #homemade #smoked 3mon

cmpphotoinc Ok as promised here's what the pork belly (bacon) looks like after a seven day cure and four hours in the smoker. I'm going to let it rest over night the fry it up in the morning. I'll post one more time then and let you know how it came out. #bacon #homemade #smoked #cured #meat 3mon

cmpphotoinc My lovely wife Jennifer gave me a smoker for my birthday. I've been wanting to try my hand at curing meat. So here's my first attempt... bacon! 1.5lbs with sea salt brown sugar and fresh pepper corns the other 1.5 with sea salt brown sugar and maple syrup. Seven days to cure four hours to smoke, then I will post results. #bacon #homemade 4mon

cmpphotoinc Our little Rose-bee needs a buddy. She gets very sad/lonely when we leave for work/school. Any Basenji people/rescues or breeders out there please reply. Rosebud is one year old and a little small for the breed, only 14.5lbs We'd like her pal to by about the same. #basenji #dog 6mon
