    I was thinking about cooking a cured smoked bacon piece to about 205 and pulling it and making pulled bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. Defrosting a belly now to cure. Might reserve a piece for that.

    They will be fine. Have you had Pork roll before? Some central PA grocery chains like Giant have pre-sliced Taylor's. It is not real smokey...JJ

    Is there anything I can use besides the wine in this recipe?

    Beer :)- Maybe some red wine vinegar?

    Why no port? It's very minimal.

    I'm not a wino either! Beer Beer Beer Beer!

    With that said, port is used in quite a few sausages, and the bottle will keep. Linguica uses about a 1/4 cup... Just saying.

    Get a really Good Port! Use what you need and bring the rest when you head North. I'll trade you a Yuengling for the rest...[​IMG]...JJ

    I buy the stuff that's in the $5-$9 range for sausage making. Just depends on what's on sale...

    Got 6# of belly in the brine right now and this looks really interesting. I'll have to fight the Mrs, though. She really likes bacon LOL!

    That's way to much for me. With JJ moving close to me I just may buy a bottle of the expensive stuff for him when we get together
