Hello.

I haven't done bacon in a while and I may be having a brain fart.

I had this bellys in Pop's brine for 12 days.  Pulled them out today, rinsed them off and trimmed a high area off one of the pieces.

Really red ?? is this OK or should I throw them back in the brine for a few more days?? Thanks Mike

OK Thanks!!   I injected  that really thick part on the belly early on also.  Guess I was just second guessing things.

Rotating the hunks every few days, while it is in the brine, is a good thing to do....
