(Make It A Double) Big Dog's Custom Flavored North Country Smokehouse Applewood Bacon
Updated: Jun 27
BLT's are a unique American staple. It is one of the most common sandwiches that has multiple identities across the country. Everyone has their own version of what goes into a good BLT, what toppings, what spreadables, and even the types of bread for the ultimate bacon-fix! These BLT's are made with North Country Smokehouse's applewood bacon. This is unlike any other bacon out on the market. Their bacon has such a clean flavor with a gentle smoke aroma, and this served as perfection all on its own. What if you wanted more than just awesome bacon? This also allows for a whole different avenue to take when you want to add your favorite sauces or spice rubs to your bacon! That's why we are working with the sauces and house seasoning from Big Dog Sauce Company NH alongside North Country Smokehouse.
To make this, please visit Big Dog Sauce Company of New Hampshire for the spice rub and lots of other wonderful products. You will need their "house seasoning" and their line of sauces in order to work with this recipe. They may be available in your area if you are in the greater New England region. For the applewood smoked bacon and other amazing meats, please visit North Country Smokehouse's website or check your local stores! You will need half-sheet pans, lined with parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
1lb/453g North Country Smokehouse Applewood Smoked Bacon Big Dog Sauce Company's sauces and/or spice rub, your choice
Each parchment-lined half-sheet tray, pour just enough sauce (approximately 2-3oz) to cover both sides of the bacon strips. Four strips can easily be coated with no more than 3oz.
If you use Big Dog's house seasoning, keep the spice rub to one side of the tray. Place your strips of bacon and then lightly coat the tops with more rub.
If you opt to try all of the sauces, follow step 1.
Bake in the oven with a timer set for the first 25 minutes. Check for doness and make adjustments to your times for personal preference.
BE CAREFUL not to overcook as the sauces and spice rub have sugar. You will run the risk of burning the bacon.
OPTIONAL: Cook the bacon traditionally and then smear on your favorite Big Dog Sauce and/or house seasoning.
YOUR CHOICE: The types of bread, lettuce, tomatoes, and spreadable condiment is entirely up to you. There is a Big Dog spicy maple mayo made on a separate recipe that goes extremely well with this BLT.
RECOMMENDATIONS: North Country Smoke House complete line of bacon, deli meats, ham, and poultry. The entire line will do well with this method!
