Well, I got the 40 pounds of bacon done sliced up and all wrapped up. Tried some this morning and it was absolutely amazing.,,, I did 19 days of it being in the cure. (Used digging dog farms bacon calculator) Then 3-8 hour cold smoke sessions and then it sat in the fridge. Uncovered for 1 week before slicing and wrapping.,,,,

Nice , Looks really good. I wish I had that dedication and not touch the bacon for that long in the fridge after
the process. 1 week of walking past the fridge... I know I would have sliced enough for a BLT at least, but that's just me :emoji_sunglasses:

I'm with David, your a stronger man than me! Mighty fine looking bacon. I've only hot smoked bacon. With the cooler temps I may have to try cold smoking.
