So I cured my bellies 12 days ago and am starting the prep to smoke.

1. Washed my bellies

Too salty...oh and where did that little piece go?a6f98852-c086-187a.jpg

Into cold water to soak. Should I put it in the fridge too?

The fridge wouldn't hurt.  How's the salt now?

Just got the bacon into the pan for round 2. We will see how that tastes shortly.

Soaking for an hour or so did the trick. Dried well by blotting with paper towels and into the fridge until tomorrow.

Bacon in the MES with smoke provided by the AMNPS with Maple pellets.

Had a little trouble keeping the AMNPS maple pellets lit tonight. I had frozen packs of ice to keep the temp down and that dripped on it. Then I don't think I had enough air.

Only got a few hours of smoke but got some decent color.

I think I should have dried out the pellets again or used a fresh batch after they got dripped on.
