  1. I am in the middle of releasing a series of meal-themed bacon bourbon cocktail how-to's. First, you need to learn how to make bacon bourbon. We just released my favorite so far which is a BLT Bacon Bourbon Cocktail, and here is how to make it: Ingredients: Bacon Bourbon (3 parts) V8 Original (3 parts) Horseradish (1 tbsp shaved) Worcestershire Sauce (dash) Lettuce Ice Cubes (fill cup) Salt (dash) Lemon Pepper (dash) Lime (1/4 lime) Cherry Tomato (2) Avocado (1 slice) Directions Make Lettuce Ice Cubes, Fill Serving Glass (Shred a few leaves of lettuce into an ice cube tray, fill the tray with water and leave in the freezer) Squeeze 1/4 lime into the shaker Add shaved horseradish to the shaker and muddle Add 3 parts Bacon Bourbon to shaker Add 3 parts V8 Original to shaker Add a dash of Worcestershire Sauce to shaker Add a dash of lemon pepper, a dash of salt Shake well and pour Sandwich a slice of avocado with 2 cherry tomatoes for garnish & Serve! ENJOY!!
  2. How has nobody thought of "leave the gun, take the bacon" from the original Godfather. A bacon wrapped cannoli could also work in this quote.
  3. Hey David. I think I know your problem! A good rule of thumb is to cure the pork belly for 2 days/lb of raw meat. 7 days would not be enough time to properly cure a 5lb belly. I would think that the moisture removed in the last 3 days would make it taste less like ham. Also, if your belly was lean, there is a good chance that might have contributed to the ham-like taste. Bacon has its unique taste because of the fat...as I always say "fat is where the flava is". I wrote an article a while back about how to cure pork belly, you can check it out for a few tips & tricks to make sure your final product comes out right next time! http://www.whatisbacon.com/diy-bacon-how-to-cure-a-pork-belly/
  4. I love pig candy! I wrote an article about it on my site a bit back. I will provide the link at the end of this reply. My trick is to use a soft bristled brush, dip it in a viscous sweetener like honey or agave nectar, coat the strips, and then sprinkle on the cayenne/chili/brown sugar. So. damn. delicious. http://www.whatisbacon.com/man-candy-recipe-how-to-make-sweet-spicy-bacon/
