I bought beef bacon from a smokehouse for $6.20 per pound. I was so disappointed, that I decided to make my own. I used a beef navel that I got from a local butcher, and used Walton’s “Excalibur Bacon Rub Cure”. I followed the directions for this product. The end result is unbelievable! Some of the best bacon I have eaten. If I did not tell you that it was beef bacon, you wouldn’t know that it wasn’t pork. I am making beef bacon to cut down on pork. Could not be happier.!!
@Michael-Wright Looks good! I’m impressed that you made this and really excited to try it at some point! I am wondering if other cures would act differently with beef but it sounds like the first one to try is the regular Excalibur Bacon Rub Cure!
The only kind of dehydrator I’ve used for snack sticks is a jerky dehydrator. The snack sticks will shrivel just like jerky but maintain the flavor.
I’ll try to upload a pic. The ones on the left are the dehydrated sticks and the ones on the right were slow cooked in an oven.
Has anyone tried to dehydrate snack sticks instead of using a smoker?
Tonight’s dinner is a spatchcocked whole chicken marinated in my fermented chili sauce. Sides of grilled sweet peppers from the garden and rice.
