So. I smoked my first side of bacon yesterday. Once I pulled it off the smoker, I cooled it off in the refrigerator. Several hours later, (at 6 o clock) I took it out, sliced it up, and put it in plaistic bags to be frozen. This is when I had to go do something, I thought I would just be gone for a minute, but I forgot about it, and didn't think of it again until this morning. I remembered it, at 9 AM, and immediately put it in the refrigerator. It smells and looks just fine, but I do not feel comfortable eating it unless I know it is safe to eat. Something else I should add, is that it has no nitrates in it. What say you? Is it safe? or should I get rid of it.
