    Nepas, can LJ's be kept in a regular fridge to cure? Do you keep 'em flattened the whole time they are curing? How do you determine when they are cured enough? I'll bet they taste twice as good as they look.

    Sure SE

    After they have had smoke/heat to em?

    Yes you can, the fridge will dry the LJ and reduce the green weight.

    You dont really have to press em  if ya dont want, or press em down bout an hour before the smoker.

    Nepas I have a couple questions. I have the same seasoning to use. If I don't smike them to finiahed temp and want to dry cure do I just add a culture and cold smoke? Do I add dextrose?
