The Makin Bacon Rub carries notes of aniseed and maple woven into the mix to impart great bold flavour into cured bacon or salt pork. The Makin Bacon Rub does exactly what it says.....makes bacon! This rub has been created as a nitrate free bacon cure. Rub it on, leave for a week, rinse and smoke voilà - BACON! It can also be used as a basic rub or to cure fish.
