Cider Mill Maple Burbon Bacon


New member
OK this is my first attempt at making bacon and is modified from tenthunter's recipe, thanks Cliff. I just put it in to cure so it'll be a couple of weeks before I can taste it. Sometimes a time machine would be nice. :eek:

Anyhow this is the brine I'm using.

1 gal of Distilled Water
1/2 gal of Apple Cider
1 1/3 cups of Morton Canning salt
6 level tsp of Prague Powder #1
1 1/2 cups of organic pure maple syrup
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup of Kentucky Bourbon

It smelled fabulous, especially if you like Bourbon. I'll get some pictures going as the process moves along. I will be smoking with Apple wood. I just added a well known cold smoke generator to my pellet smoker so I am stoked to see how this all comes together. More later.


I can't wait to see this one finished. The addition of the maple (which I love) and the Burgin sure has my curiosity piqued.
