Quick question for buckboard bacon

  1. So I'm planning to start my first buck board bacon this coming weekend.. I plan on using pops wet brine and my question I really have is I bought some apple smoke jalapeño bacon from a guy and I wanna do that with buck board bacon... So any help here would be great I was thinking A.- either cut up a few jalapeño peppers and let it soak in with the brine or should I B.- dehydrate some of my peppers and rub it on before I cold smoke any input here from all you veterans would be awsome for this newbie
  2. I would do both. Depending on how much brine you are making I would chop up about 6-12 per gallon. Do a fry test after pulling from the brine. If it's not spicy enough rub with your dried jalapenos.
  3. Awesome thanks a million
