Always nice to have any kind of bacon.

Cornmeal Coated Back Bacon, from Costco. Cooked indirect for a few hours at 300F until done (170F).

The meat:

On the Egg with a little BBQ sauce for looks:

All done!:

Now the side dish - potatoes, onions mixed in Veg. oil and Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head, and peas added after potatoes where cooked - about 30 minutes at 350F.

    Interesting!!
    So it was cured, but not smoked already?
  • Is that the same as peameal bacon? I tasted it when I was in Canada for Nieggare fest, and it was great. We cant't get it here, so I want to cure/smoke my own.

    My understanding is that it's pre-cooked/cured and not smoked. i didn't smoke it either.

    My understanding is it's the same except for the topping being cornmeal instead of peameal - I can't taste the difference. The grocery stores sell peameal bacon, Costco has Cornmeal - they look the same!

  • Faith,

    I've always thought it was peameal bacon as I have not been able to tell the difference between what you find in the grocery stores and what is at Costco. I like to cook this up for breakfast from time-to-time and it is yummy. I do add wood chips to give a more smokey taste.

    I think that peameal actually refers to cornmeal. Perhaps in the past peameal was actually used - but all recipes now call for cornmeal as the finishing touch.

    sweeeet!!!
    looooks sooo tasty!!!
  • Whatever peameal means, it was delicious and I would like to be able to duplicate it... if anyone knows a recipe for it, I would greatly appeciate it.
