Which is the proper way to do the dry curing process. I have read about it being done both ways. Is there any disadvantages to vacuum sealing the bellies after the cure is applied.

The only disadvantage I can think of is cost. I used Ziploc bags and they worked fine for me. Just made sure I got most of the air out of the bags and they didn't open while rubbing/flipping them over. I also folded the edges up and over so the liquid that forms from curing stays in contact with the bellies.
