Frozen perk belly

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm gearing up for my first attempt at making bacon. I've been reading up and I'm planning on following Pops wet cure method.

My question is, Can I use frozen pork belly? If so, do I need to fully thaw first? Does this change the cure time? Any other tips?

Fully thaw.....

Like Dave says, fully thaw it before it goes into the brine( you would crap if you learned how long it would take to thaw in a bucket of brine thats sitting in a fridge )

The colder the temp, the slower cure works.... 36-38 deg. F are about the minimum you want to cure meat....
