I decided I want to remove the rind on my first belly that I'll be curing for bacon. I made an attempt last night but found it to be a PITA so I wanted to ask you bacon vets if there was a trick to it. I tried getting a knife under it and ended up taking out a nice chunk of my bacon fat that I don't want to lose. I read an older thread on here where someone mentioned his rind still had nipples and I thought he was making a joke.
Nope, there's actually NIPPLES! WEIRD! Any advice on easily removing the rind and the nips would be appreciated.
