Been a while Bacon

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey all. BBB is a favorite of mine to smoke manly because the price is right and it's good. Fresh pork belly bacon in my area is a little spendy imo $4.79 lb on average. For that reason I've only did a couple lbs once and it was fantastic, of course it's bacon right. I've been wanting to do more ever since. The other day I was @ cash & carry and ask the the clerk if they carried pork belly. They sure do but it's frozen and walks me over there.  @ $2.86 lb what the hell and grabbed a box. Now it's the waiting game, de thaw, cure, smoke an eat in about three weeks. lol. I know it won't be as good as fresh, but i'm still just as excited............ Yes there will be Qveiw. You just have to wait 3 weeks like I do..........lmao

Will you be dry or wet curing? How long will you smoke it? Have you desided what wood to use?

I might just do that. A brother from another mother gave me $50 last night to get a belly an smoke for him. It might be worth the time. Or I might just refreeze for a later.

I have skin in the freezer now for the next batch of pork rind pellets. A little goes a long way.

Have a ? when you boil, is it a hard boil or a rolling boil or does it even matter. Thanks David
