Green Bacon!

Saint Patrick’s Day means a little more than just an Irish holiday to me. It’s my birthday. I really enjoyed looking at other blog’s and facebook pages to see how much green beer is consumed and how much boiled dinner was served. While browsing I came across something really fascinating. A friend of mine on facebook, we’ll call him Jim, took GREEN to the next level.

This bacon was marinated over night with this Green Gravy. What’s in the gravy? It’s a mixture of 12 jalapenos, 8 cloves of garlic, and ¾ cup of peanut oil. This was then smoked with apple and hickory. This is definitely a recipe that I will be adding to my list. When I asked him how it turned out he said: “It's easily the best bacon I've ever had. In fact, if I could be on the show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" I would be talking about this bacon!”
