Tim what is the brand name of the syrup you used?I just started my first attempt at bacon, cut the belly into thirds and squared up the edges so they would fit into 1 Gal zip lock bags.
The maple syrup I bought was aged in bourbon barrels and it wasn't that expensive around $8.00 for a 12 oz bottle.
I tasted it and it had a slight bourbon taste, not overpowering.
I threw the bottle away because the size was perfect for three slabs. I bought it at Jewel and checking inventory this was it: https://www.instacart.com/jewel-osco/products/17718758-crown-maple-maple-syrup-bourbon-barrel-aged-250-mlTim what is the brand name of the syrup you used?

The price was on clearance, so I grabbed it.
Edit: checking the price on amazon I got a good deal https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B012M6PUHC/tvwb-20
Just did my first batch of bacon and I’m never going back to store bought! Next round, I’d like to do a bourbon brown sugar. Can I put the bourbon in with the cure or will then screw up the chemicals reactions?
