The LBGE is only 46 cms (18") in diameter so it would never work, unless you put it over a rib rack but then you are only able to do 1 at a time. No good.
I didn't get around to measuring the Smoke Vault yesterday for the length to hang them, but worst case scenario, ill just cut the bellies down and offset them on 2 racks and hang them that way.
I just finished putting them into cure. 50 lbs total. 1x Honey Chipotle, 2x Double Applewood Smoked ( basic Ruhlman with a twist), and 1 x Sriracha and Garlic.
I had 1 belly that came in that was quite thin, so I decided to make a pancetta with it. Never made that before so it should be interesting,
Going to do a 3-4 hours of smoke on the Sriracha, then remove and leave the others in for a few more hours and remove the Honey Chipotle, then leave the last 2 in for 12-14 hours
