Need an opinion

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

This just came out of a the fridge after a week with the Hi-Mountain buckboard bacon cure on it.  It doesn't look evenly colored which I take as not cured completely.  Should I go ahead and smoke it, or cure it longer?

That is normal. The spots are from touching the bag and oxidizing differently. The color will even out as you smoke it.

Thanks.  I cold smoked it at about 90-110 for about 4 hours and it turned out better than the others I've done at 70ish.  Just ordered an AMNPS and 2lbs each of pitmasters and apple to try.  I need to quit futzing around and build a more permanent smoker.
