Anyone ever try to make buckboard bacon?
Bacon made out of a deboned pork butt. Tried my first batch, and it came out good. It’s similar to standard belly bacon in taste but it has a higher meat to fat ratio.

No, but I will be in the foreseeable future. Wife-lady loves bacon but hates the fat.

Thanks for posting!

I followed the EQ method, which just used salt, brown sugar, and curing salt. There’s a calculator on this site where you weigh the meat in grams and it’ll how you exactly how much cure to use. I cured this for 15 days. I didn’t intend to let it go that long, but with the winter weather it put me a few days behind

Yes, I have. Been a minute, but it sure was good. I liked it better than regular belly bacon. Enough fat for good flavor and LOTS of good lean meat! Yours looks good. IWEI

It really did fry up nicely. I was wondering how it'd be since it didn't seem super fatty, but the flavor was really nice

I think I had a buckboard bacon sandwich at some restaurant within the last year or so. Didn't realize this is what it was. Thanks for sharing.

Albertson's has Boston Butt on sale .88/pound. Guess I know what I'll be doing after work today.

Did you cold or hot smoke yours? It looks amazing.

I hot smoked on my smokers lowest setting, which is 180. I’d like to try cold smoking at some point though

I’m just the opposite. The fat is my favorite.

Have always meant to attempt it, this thread just reminded me . The sandwich at Butcher is the best thing on their menu.

Cold smoke is way to go. A-maze-n smoker with pellets of your choice turns any grill into cold smoker as long as ambient temperature not too high.

I just put mine in the fridge in a 2 gallon ziplock. Can’t wait to try it in 2 weeks.

I just smoked my first Buck board this weekend! One piece blk pepper and one piece smoked Thai Chili pepper. Used the Digging dog calculator. Been making bacon from bellies for years, but this is really nice
