Now we're talking!

Infuse simultaneously?  I'm thinking habanero first so you can dilute to get the heat level you want.  Then bacon it.  You can't have too much bacon.

One thing is for sure at the AHA...bacon and weaz are synonymous.  ;)

I love bacon and eggs (overeasy) and home fries with toast and a spicy bloody mary to wash it down.  :)

I'm in Minneapolis about 15 times a year and usually stay in that area a few times waiting for a plane.  Thank you for giving me something to look forward to the next time I'm stuck there.

Dude, when you are stuck in MSP. make sure you hit the Rock Bottom Brewery, in the D concourse. Awesome pulled pork sandwich, and the IPA is great! I try and schedule all my flights through there with a good three hour lay over.

I'll give it a try.  I'm usually headed elsewhere from DTW at about 4 in the morning but I'll try to set something up for a longer layover at a better time of day.  Can't believe I'd want to spend MORE time in an airport though....

I tell ya man, I've been in a lot of airports lately, and MSP seems to be my favorite so far. True, Rock Bottom has a lot to do with it. But, it's clean, and comfortable. Easy to get around, with the trama. The only thing I really don't like about it, is no free WiFi. Gotta pay for the Boingo. I think that is ridiculious. Lots of airports out there with free wifi. Just a way to make a buck.  ::)

Just curious if anyone has done the fat washing with bacon for infusing liquor. I don't do the hard stuff hardly anymore and wondered how it worked out.

 Bacon, eggs and grits for supper.

 Not going to sacrifice my good bourbon on an experiment but I just happen to have some Crown that someone gave me. 2 cups are poured awaiting the grease. I figure 4 or 5 tablespoons should do it. Refridgerate over night. I need something to wash down my blood pressure medicine in the morning :D

Hey, Maxieboy... on procedure, apparently there's different ways to do this. the link you posted talks about putting the bacon into the bourbon. the article I read in Whisky Mag talks about removing the bacon & putting in the grease. so now the tubercle needs to do a side by side on the two methods :D
Title: Re: For da Weaze
Post by: maxieboy on April 16, 2011, 01:26:27 pm
Oh, OK, didn't realize you posted the procedure in the other thread. Yes, Tubercle is now commissioned to do the testing.  ;)
Title: Re: For da Weaze
Post by: tubercle on April 16, 2011, 08:49:42 pm
OK, tried the procedure described above by adding grease to the Crown.

 Put in the fridge overnight. Removed the grease on top. A lot of particulate in the liquid so I strained twice through coffee filters.

  Tasted like bacon grease, of all things, with alcohol added. Over whelmed the liquor. Left a very heavy film of grease on the tongue and roof of the mouth.

 One taste, poured the rest out.

 Not good.

Not surprising to me. The other way makes more sense, IMO.

Finally sampled the baco-rum.

Done with grease/drippings, in Cruzan amber rum.  I strained out the fat in two stages, chilling the rum down before filtering to solidify the fat.  Worked really well...after straining through a coffee filter the fat was gone.

When I smelled it I was surprised at how little smell I got from it.  I wondered if the filtering had removed the flavor too!  ....NOT SO!  wow!  Very, well, bacony...smokey and porcine.  I then mixed up a bloody mary, but then realized afterwards that, well, I don't really like bloody marys anyway, so I'll try it again straight.  Neat trick, would be a nice gimmick to have on hand for guests!
