Smoked Pulled Pork

Smoked Pulled Pork

Kansas City Style with a Canadian Twist

Posted on July 18, 2017
Smoked Pulled Pork is the ultimate summer party food. Soaked in sweet and spicy sauce, served on a bun, stuffed into a roasted potato (regular or sweet), and eaten with your closest friends and family, there is no doubt that summer is incomplete without making some smoked pulled pork. This recipe is KansasCity Style, with a bit of a Canadian Twist. I served this to my neighborhood when we had a block party to celebrate summer. It was the perfect porcine potluck provision to share. 

 

If you are making the pork ahead of time or to freeze for later, you can skip adding the sauce to the shredded pork. If packaging for the freezer, instead of serving it all at once, make sure that you freeze it for maximum freshness by following the directions in this blog post. I generally pack 1 lb. at a time; that will feed about four when reheated.

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

Maple Peppercorn Bacon

The cure for the common bacon

Posted on October 01, 2015
Maple Peppercorn Bacon is spicy, peppery, sweet and bacon. It's the bacon-est bacon that ever baconed and you will love it. Not only because you put so much love and effort into it. (Flipping that bag filled with meat once per day is really difficult you guys!) Okay really the hardest parts were the waiting and then not eating it all as soon as it was off the smoker. The smell is just beyond amazing.

Homemade Smoked Bacon

Homemade Smoked Bacon

Two Different Ways

Posted on June 24, 2014
You could go to the store and buy that mushy watery, greasy, splattery, messy bacon that you usually eat with your weekend breakfasts. But you could buy a slab of pork belly and wait for 10 days to have your own Homemade Smoked Bacon. Not only is it the most delicious bacon you will have ever tasted on the face of this planet ever, but you will have the satisfaction of knowing exactly what's in it; how it was made.  And the knowledge, the deep down satisfaction of having made it yourself. Wow your friends and family, if you choose to share, with this most incredible pork creation. 

It was the longest 7 to 10 days of our lives when we were making this. Waiting for, not only the bacon to cure, but for my husband, the Baron of Baking's, first skydive with a dozen or so friends the same day. I stayed with my feet planted firmly on the ground, catering the event with Curry Beer Butt Chicken and these delightful Burgers. But because we busted out the smoker to make the chicken, we figured it would be a great time to smoke the bacon. I mean the charcoal was already lit and smouldering away. 

Needless to say, the Baron survived his fall to the earth, probably the best thing he has ever done, or so he says. I, on the other hand, think that making this bacon is probably the best thing I have ever done.
