    Just received 27.5 lbs. of pork belly "Freebie Samples" from a distributor, to make some bacon out of.

    There's no way I can cure & smoke all at once, so how long is it's life in the freezer, before I have to cure & smoke, and how long is it's life in the freezer, once it's cured and smoked? It will be vacuum packed.

    Waiting for my new MES to be delivered.

    Thanks In Advance!

  2. Depends how you wrap it or vacum pak. Before curing 6mo esp. in a frost free freezer. After smoking and vac sealed a year or more.
