Tried something new, I vacuum sealed the pork belly with the cure of course and just wanted to see if it would work as well as using the 2 gallon bag method and turning everyday. Appears to have worked well, don't know if any other have tried this or not. Sliced and ready for the freezer and some gifting to friends of course. Now looking for a newer and larger slicer, this is the one that was recommended to me. KWS Premium Commercial 320w Electric Meat Slicer 10" with Non-sticky Teflon Blade, Frozen Meat/ Cheese/ Food Slicer Low Noises Commercial and Home Use Input is welcome of course.
