Ok, i didnt realize you were using a different type of bag, i thought you were opening a ziplok bag and flipping them every day, my bad. You might not have to soak the meat for a couple hrs, i usually soaked mine for a half an hour. If it was too salty i would go another 15 mins and try it, you might be good at trying that a couple times, you might only need a half an hour.
And on the frozen slicing. i didnt know if the slicer would cut through the frozen meat. Thats why i was curious.
xj, it's cool. I appreciate your suggestion about flipping. I'm definitely soaking the next time I do bacon, as well. Best of luck with the slicing! You should be okay after the meat firms up.
capn, thank you!
