Nother newbee from NJ

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just found this website today and think it's great. I've been curing and smoking meat for several years and never thought to look around for a forum of like minded users. Go figure, here it is all the time. I do an occassional brisket, some ribs, some cold smoked salmon and once a year I try and make a batch of bacon. This is the bacon time for me and in fact it's in the smoker today. Having a bit of trouble keeping the temp. in line today but it's not really important enough to loose any sleep over. After smoking I hang it and let it air dry for 2 weeks then slice it for use. That's why I wait until this time of year. I'm doing one half slab with just salt / sugar for my nephew. His kids have a lot of allergie issues and I wanted to do some for him with no nitrates. I'm doing the other half slab with no smoke and different seasoning for pancetta. The rest I will smoke for some good ole traditional bacon.
Thanks all, lets keep up the good work.
