Bacon Burnt Ends

Post by Jim » 01 Jun 2019, 12:05

My quest to create Bacon Burnt Ends is complete. :LOL2:
I was able to find "Slab" bacon at the local butcher shop. I had him cut me roughly a 2-pound slab. His curiosity peaked when I asked him not to slice it. I told him I was attempting to make bacon burnt ends. I also wanted to try a new BBQ sauce, something that would offset the bacon and rub with some sweetness. I ended up going with Kosmos Q Cherry Habanero BBQ Sauce. Think about the flavors for a second.....Bacon, rub, Cherry, and a hint of heat.

I tried to cut the bacon into even "squares"

My current Smoker. I used a heavy cast iron pan with apple chunks. The pan that comes with these are garbage in my opinion

After 2 hours at roughly 225 plus or minus 10 degrees :|

Sauced and ready to go back into smoker for 30 more minutes

Overall it was a success. Next time I will smoke them for a little longer, maybe 45 minutes. They lasted about 15 minutes after they came out.

I just purchased a pork belly and am going to attempt to make my own bacon. If it works, I will do it again for the next experiment with Bacon Burnt Ends
