I am smoking my first 6lb belly today hot smoke at 180-200 on my Traeger one thing I think is this is too big of belly to do my first time so presently I started a second batch curing in 3 3 lbs sections and feel that batch will be better after reading the different threads. I like how this 1st one firmed up but time will tell. I used Backwoods Maple Cure on first batch. Using Apple wood pellets and today is pretty warm and humid in Indiana. Fingers crossed and hopeful to upload pics throughout process.
