Cold smoke , how does it look?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
2nd time attempting bacon.

1st time I hot smoked it , it came out awesome. Was somewhat dry when it came out and nice golden brown.

Used pops brine again and let fridge dry for 24hrs then cold smoked , looks almost like it just came out the brine , still moist looking.
Is this normal for a cold smoke ?
I will see what it looks like after it firms up in the fridge over night

How long did you smoke it for? I only cold smoke and I smoke the bacon for 18-24 hours, in 6-8 hour increments. With an over night rest in between each 6-8 hour smoke.

I think you haven't smoked it long enough.

I really don't have a time limit on how long to cold smoke bacon.

 

I just let it go until I get the color I'm looking for.

 

Most of the time that's around 10-12 hours.

 

I agree with Case, you just didn't smoke it long enough.

 

I would just put it back in the smoker until it looks like you want.

It does look a lot better after sitting in the fridge. It smoked for almost 6 hours and smells good, just wasn't sure about the texture.
