I've been trying for 2 days now to upload some jpg pics of a dry cured and smoked bacon, but I can't get the pics to upload. have tried 2 computers and several attempts to upload these 2 pics, so I'll describe the pics ...........I can see that the cure penetrated evenly around the slice, yet the middle color is grey. no odor to speak of, but the taste is not as good as past attempts. Seems to me that I didn't leave the meat to cure long enough?? 4 or 5 days only and I was experimenting with this new European cure #1.
Also, both my wife and I have had mild food poisoning for the last couple of days and hopefully not related to the bacon.
BTW.....could the problem with the uploading pics be with the forum and not me??
I'll keep trying to upload
