In this video I cover an easy way to make beef bacon, using the Umai Dry Bag! I cover the curing and smoking process of the beef.

How To Make Beef Bacon

Ingredients for curing rub:

  • 1/2 c sea salt
  • 3 T finely ground black pepper
  • 3 T raw sugar
  • 1/4 c pickling spice
  • 3 t pink curing salt #1

Preferred meat is beef belly but this cut is usually a special order where I live and was unavailable at the time of this video so I used beef short rib instead.

Ingredients for smoking rub:

  • Raw sugar
  • Granulated garlic
  • Cracked black pepper rub by Knox’s Spice Company

Smoker temp = 200F

Estimated Time = 3-4 hours

Internal meat temp = 150F

Recommended gear for this cook:
