Ian, try a little cinnamon. What flavour are you using for smoking? If apple, or something else sweet, even better. As far as salt, go with coarse kosher.

I am going to smoke some bacon this month. (yes it is hard to keep lit if you don't mix in some tobacco). But seriously, does anyone have a suggestion for a unique cure? I usually just do brown sugar and salt, or pepper and salt.

Suggestions are appreciated.

I've been too lazy lately to slice my own bacon so have been buying it at work with the ridiculously low prices on it there. My wife cooked some tonight under the broiler - had never seen it done like that before. Came out perfectly! I'm going to have to buy more bacon now so I can get her to show me how to do it so I can make a video of it :-)

Bacon on sale right now #2 bacon buy 10 lbs for $27.50. I think til Saturday.

I picked up a slab of their once-smoked, uncooked bacon today to see how I stack up against the big boys :-) Theirs is extremely good, but my wife and I both prefer mine. One thing that really surprised me with theirs is how smoky it is - I love a good smoky flavour and do about 3 hours of smoke on my own bacon, but theirs was even smokier. Their double-smoked bacon must be insane!

I think the maple syrup in my cure makes the difference since I use quite a bit - thanks to monty's recipe. Mine is a bit saltier - my latest batch at least, which turned out a bit saltier than usual for some reason I'm not sure why. And I think my herb and spice mixture comes through better.

Given that this was about the same price as store bought bacon, I'm left wondering why anyone would ever buy the regular stuff. Sure it is not quite as good as mine, but that is splitting hairs because this is incredible bacon!

Andrew & I got bacon from here this weekend to have with our Sunday morning pancakes. We both thought it was good, but that it tasted more like meat than bacon. Either way, we weren't particularly impressed and probably will stick to our other favourite meat places for bacon.
