    is there a "sticky" somewhere or does anyone have a link or 2 (on this forum or other) for making bacon? Sort of a bacon 101. Just got a brining bucket and gonna try to do some bacon sometime in near future.

    "wet equilibrium brine bacon"
    ummmmmm, ok?????? never done bacon so not too sure. basically want to take some pork belly, brine it, smoke it (cold or low heat). That was sort of all I know (or think I know) about it.

    Pops brine is what you're looking for.
     
  11. and then there is another question....are you planing to fry that bacon afterwards or you planing to eat it "raw" as charcuterie..different consumption requires different way of curing and aging...
