Getting ready for Bacon

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi 

I'm getting ready to try some of 'Pop's' brined bacon and have a couple of questions please.

After brinning, it's dried off and ready to form a pellicle.  Should the bacon go in the fridge to form the pellicle?

Can you split the smoke time into 2 or more periods and what is the maximum length of time between smokes and should it be refrigerated?

 

thanks

Gary

I put mine in fridge to dry for 24 hours and smoke for 12 hours.

Alot of people smoke longer and break up the smoke times.

You can split the smoking times if you wish to add more smoke flavor.  You should not have any problems if properly brined.  I usually just put the bellies in the fridge just to be safe between smoking smokes.

Thanks C Farmer and Bear, I'm just getting things sorted in me head, so that I'm confident when I take the plunge.
