I'm trying to make bacon for the first time but I have a small little problem I hope someone will help me with. I'm using the buckboard cure, it's been ten days in the cure, now it's time to soak it and rinse it. NO problem yet, but I can't find the time to smoke it untill next week end. Should I just soak it and rinse out the cure and vacume seal it and just keep it in the refrigerator, or should I stick it in the freezer? I figure after ten days in the refrigerator another 5 days won't matter. But I'm not really sure.
