    Bacon Curing - Is 2 Months Too Long

    Definitely a good tip. Unfortunately, it was an out-of-sight, out-of-mind situation.

    Bacon Curing - Is 2 Months Too Long

    Thanks for the information - good to know. Wild some people on FB were saying it was all gravy *because* it is EQ even after seeing what I used for a calculation.

    Bacon Curing - Is 2 Months Too Long

    I'll eventually get there. Right now, if I had that amount of meat at one time, the majority would go into my chest freezer. For that, I just care that the freezer hasn't lost power long enough to defrost and I use the good old penny in a water bottle trick for that. This loss is thankfully...

    Bacon Curing - Is 2 Months Too Long

    Yeah it sucks but this is also one of those times that I am totally at peace with it. I've wasted way more money than this before and the idea of getting my wife or kid sick trying to salvage this is way worse than the feeling that I wasted an amount of money I won't even remember in 2 weeks...

    Bacon Curing - Is 2 Months Too Long

    Hi all - lurked for a couple years without an account, first time poster. Apologies if this has been covered before - I tried searching and got some info close to what I was looking for but I think I ended up with more questions than answers. Life happened and I totally spaced I had some belly...
