    Sure seems like everyones makin bacon. Is there anyone who's not?


    I have canadian bacon comming out today with some cured Butterfly Pork chops for breakfast hams. (good stuff)

    I have a ham and some buckboard curing now.

    I wonder what I'll do next?

    belly for sure.

    As for the canadian bacon;
    I thought maybe I should cold smoke one loin so I can pan fry it(like bacon) and hot smoke the other.The loins are soaking now so I have time to think about it.
    Any comments

    we always have "free fridges" posted on craigslist. Maybe you should look into getting a curing fridge.
