    well it takes 2 weeks to cure, and with some tender loving apple wood smoke applied.......I was informed that we will NEVER buy bacon again.....I'm supposed to make this on a constant basis....

    yea, this was not a purchased premix cure either.....

    2 lbs pork shoulder (I actually used blade shoulder and cut the blade out)
    1/3 cup unsulfured molasses
    1/4 cup kosher salt
    3/4 cup brown sugar packed
    2 Tbs liquid smoke
    1 Tbs garlic powder
    1 Tbs onion powder
    1 tsp prague #2

    trim butt, put in zip lock baggie with molasses and liquid smoke, coat the meat, add all of the remaining ingredients to the bag. Let cure 2 weeks turning every few days. After 2 weeks, rinse with cold water, then allow to sit in cold water 2 hours, drain and pat dry. Let come to room temp ~1 hour or so, smoke at 200 F until internal reaches 140. I choose to smoke with applewood....... yum yum..... [​IMG]

    THERE is no substitute for the wyoming bacon in my house...

    its replaced bacon for sandy's and
    hocks for beans and lentils and split peas...

    when we do have eggs for breakfast i use turkey chorizo..

    10 yr old grand pup got 3 turkeys with 1 shot from 20 gauge...

    yes in fridge, turn every couple of days.

    prague #2 is prague curing salt number 2, it's usually used for dry curing sausages (prague #1 is used in smoked sausage much like tenderquick)
