I have made maple bacon and I have made Chipotle (ground dried smoked chilies). Both are really good. However, I got an email from my niece telling me how much she enjoyed the Chipotle bacon while I was eating some maple bacon. As usual, my brain had a spasm and I thought the two might be great together. I like the combination of sweet/hot. I had to give it a try. I decided to go with Back (Canadian) Bacon and picked up a pork loin. Continue reading Maple Chipotle Bacon
I made another of my series of videos giving detailed instructions on how to make bacon. It is of one of my favourite bacons, Pepper Canadian Bacon.

I have been experimenting with Berbere Spice for a couple of posts. While I was using it, I had this thought that the complex spiciness would be great in bacon. I am totally unable to resist trying these ideas so, I decided to make some back (Americans call it Canadian) bacon with some Berbere Spice in the cure. I used my A-MAZE-N-TUBE-SMOKER to cold smoke it one day and them my Louisiana Grills Pellet smoker to do a second hot smoke to finish it the next day. Continue reading Double Smoked Berbere Bacon
