Earlier on we also smoked up some cornish hens and some fresh from the farm chickens.
Also ... another one of the reasons I've been away from blogging for a bit ... I was also busy helping Dear Hubby make bratwurst. We did about 100 pounds worth ... original flavored, pizza flavored and a new recipe for Swiss flavored. Not all for ourselves of course ... we also made some up for family and friends.
Here's some pics of prior years of the bacon making process ~ sorry to bore you. I know some of you have seen this before.
The pork bellies are put into a brine (secret recipe) for a few days ...
Dear Hubby turns on the heat and gets his wood chips smoking ...
Presto!! We have Bacon!!
Slice it up ... and get it packaged and into the freezer.
It really is a labor of love.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
