    Cured my first belly with tq (Bear's recipe, thanks Bear) for 15 days. I pulled out and rinsed last night and left in fridge overnight to dry. I put it in my smoker at 100 with amnps smoke tonight at 7. My question is should I smoke all night? Should I smoke for 4 hours tonight and if I do am I safe to put it back in fridge overnight and smoke for another 4 or so hours tomorrow night? This is my first try at bacon and was planning on doing his on a weekend when I had more time but it didn't work out that way. Thanks

    You can smoke all night, I like 10 hours with the AMNPS, or go back and forth from the refer. There are guys that smoke at ambient 90°F for three days straight with no time in the fridge. The cure has you covered on bacteria...JJ
