  • Pan and oven cooking rack
  • aluminum foil
  • pastry brush
  • food processor
  • Small jars with lids


  • 1/2 pound center cut lean bacon
  • 1/3 cup Kosher salt flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place the baking rack on top of the prepared baking sheet, and arrange the bacon slices evenly on top. Brush with the Liquid Smoke flavoring and sprinkle with the pepper.
  • Bake until the fat has rendered and bacon is browned and very crispy, about 20-25 minutes. Cooking times may vary depending on thickness of bacon.
  • Drain the bacon on paper towels and blot with more paper towels to remove as much grease as possible. Cool to room temperature.
  • Crumble the bacon into the bowl of a food processor or blender fitted with a metal blade. Process until bacon is in fine pieces.
  • Add the salt and pulse until salt and bacon are combined. Spoon into small jars, seal tightly, and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
