I am finally up and walking after my wreck( i appreciate you checking in on me too Bear), and was planning to start curing my pork belly when i read somewhere about the pork fat rendering above 90. Average temps here in NC are running low to mid 90's right now. My wife and kids got me an Amazin Pellet Smoker for my bday back in June that i havent even used yet. After reading about the fat i assumed i was gonna be waiting til October.... But after reading this thread it looks like i would be safe to go ahead and get curing. I hope so.... There is 50 pounds of belly in my freezer ready for some smoke!!!
Welcome back Bubba!!!
I was really glad you're doing so good!!
I've read many times that Pork Fat renders in the 90s, but I have never had any render in my smoker up to 130°.
Lets face it, if it rendered at 90° or even 110°, there would be a lot of skinny Pigs walking around in places like Arizona.
