Recipes for Beef Belly
I've never had beef bacon but have been wanting to try it. Since no restaurants in my area (or anywhere I've been for that matter) serve it, and my local butcher has a hard time getting it, I decided to buy, cure, and smoke my own beef belly. The price was very reasonable and shipping was fast. I cured for 5 days then hit it with smoke for a few hours or so. The result was nothing short of delicious! The quality of the meat is excellent. I'll eventually buy another belly and use it for burnt ends - I hear beef belly burnt ends are off the chart!
Delicious concentrated beef flavor with perfectly marbled fat.
