I learned how to make bacon jerky after a cool, funny story with my son.
While I was cleaning out some pictures from my parents’ house, I came across a few from my scout days.
My son asked what was in my hand, “bacon jerky of course”. My son looked at me as if I were covered in diamonds. “Seriously?” I needed to fess up. It was merely bacon cooked very crispy. I put it in a baggie for our hike with the scouts. I called it jerky just because it sounded good. That didn’t stop him from continuing, “Dad, we have try this.”
So, we did some investigating online and tried to create a recipe for bacon jerky that we could call our own.
And that's how I learned how to make bacon jerky. Since then, It is one of my son's favorite foods and we actually cook it very often on our house.
