Dead Deer Bacon

Post by Devo » Sat Nov 03, 2012 18:23

So I had 4 lbs. of dead deer and 6 lbs. of dead pig and 1 lbs. of back fat. It went like this.

Dead deer meets dead pig

Let them do a hand shake and get down to making bacon. To this I added my maple bacon mix and 850 ML. of maple syrup. Should be good a maple flavored.

Into three cake pans and into the fridge over night.

Next morning I flopped them onto the racks, came out real easy because I sprayed the pans with PAM. After they where in the racks I dusted them with some magic dust.

In the smoker now getting 4 hours of Hickory. Will up date later.

Slicing day or should I say morning

First one sliced

Second one sliced

All three sliced up

Frying some up, very little grease. Some people warned me not to add the pork fat as it's to much fat..........seems I should have added more.
Image

And yes the taste test was WOW this is good dead deer.

Time to vac pack and weigh it out into 1 lbs. packages. I used the to-go lids shiny side up to support the bacon. Makes for easy packaging into the vac. bags.

Got 11 1\2 lbs. vac. packed

Looks delish Devo. I wish I had some dead deer. We are currently overrun with live ones in our sub division. They are all over the place and are destroying everything. I am seriously thinking of getting a bow and bagging one at night. But I have neighbours all over the place and some of them think that these horned rats are cute. And I'm too old to go to jail.

Ross, are you writing this from experience? If so, can you elaborate?

Thanks Ross, but that is hardly the advice or encouragement that I was seeking.

"One of the sheriff''s deputies fired a few rounds at him, and on impact, he dropped the knife and shouted, ''Take me to the hospital, you shot me!''"

I don't need the buck crying out for help and waking up the neighbours while I try to bag him for sausage. Bad, bad advice ol' boy!

Hey Devo,

At some stage, pre smoking I guess, you drained off the brine ?

Looks delicious, very innovative, never seen a bacon like product made of mince before this.

Some good ideas here :mrgreen:
