Hi all

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just a quick word of introduction

My names is Russ and I'm from the UK

I have just started out dry curing belly pork to make streaky bacon, as we call it over here (loin is called 'back bacon')

with my first batch curing as I type

Ill apologise well in advance as I am likely to pester you all to death with endless questions,

especially as I plan to have a go at making Prosciutto for next Christmas (so ill have to get cracking!!!!)

Anyway, times wasting and I have lots of questions

See you all on the Forms :781:

Cheers Gary, David.

I have posted in the curing section already :biggrin:

I have been smoking slow and low for a few years, whole beef chuck, Boston Butts, ribs etc with some real good results

I have just bought a whole cut of belly pork (one side) to have a go at dry curing, cold smoking bacon. Its been curing for a couple of days.

I have a cold smoker tray and a bacon slicer arriving in a couple of days so if the cure goes according to plan I should be laughing.

Ill drag up some pics tomorrow and post :icon_razz:
