German Speck

Reading the BBQ blog referenced in another post, I came across German Speck, which is bacon that is cured, smoked, and then smoked again. Looks like bacon uncooked, but eaten in its second-smoked state. Supposedly like bacon-squared in flavor....

Is anyone familiar with this? Searched site for speck but nothing was returned. Working up to my first effort at making bacon. With the success folks are posting, it looks too good not to try!!!!

  • Not that particular kind, but Speck in German just means bacon. I have had plenty of Speck all over Germany as part of breakfast.
  • Double post.

    speck is delicious!! I have a hard time finding it here, but there is a place that serves it as part of their charcuterie plate. Hmmmmmm.... tasty.... prosciutto is a very close second.
