  1. Hi Everyone,
    I'm t3h-Du7chm4n (Dutchy for short), and I've been smokinand curing bacon on and off for a couple of years now.

    Recently I decided to try my luck with quite a decent batch (19kg) of bacon for my friends and family.

    I'm an ex-chef (had to stop after 6 years due to a shellfish allergy) so my food handling is pretty alright (at least I like to think so).

    Because of the challenges involved in preparing this big Ol' batch of bacon I was doing some reading on the 'net and came across this forum, you all seemed like a helpful bunch so I decided to make an account in case I needed to ask some old hands at curing and smoking for advice if I ever get stuck.

    My setup is as follows:
    -60 by 33cm "Alabama Style" smoker (I liked how it looked and the fact I can run it off charcoal and use it as a BBQ also helps)

    - sunbeam vacuum sealer (food saver type)

    Oh, and incase the title isn't a dead giveaway I hail from the great land of OZ :)

    Dutchy, welcome to SMF!  Glad you're here.  There are some resident experts at SMF for curing I trust without question.  It won't take you too long to figure out who they are from reading the threads. 

    Have fun!
