Sunny today and in the 40's....supposed to be in the 60's tomorrow.  Pretty nice weather for Central Illinois in the middle of February
 
14" of snow this past Thursday with temps in the teens. Another 10-16 starting tomorrow afternoon.

Looks like my 65# of pork belly's are staying in the freezer a little longer.
 
Cold smoking food can be done at home and many people do it expertly, safely, and deliciously. But if you don't know what you are doing, if you don't have precision tools and precision control, you can kill. Yes, I know there are websites and books devoted to the subject, but based on my interaction with readers here and in person, I fear many folks who do cold smoking at home don't fully understand the risks. Grandpa made his own sausage and lox, they reason, so can they.
