Giving a little bump to this so others may run across it and try it.

My oldest son is in the Army and was home for block leave before deployment and I had some of these ready.  We sat in the backyard frying a few at a time as we ate them.

very cool! I for one appreciate your sons service to our country.

I introduced my daughter to them, now she looks for them often. She bought some and said mine were better because they were warm.......

I've read this several times and it still isn't clear to me if the skin was cured first. My mind tells me it would have to be in order to be dehydrated/dried out at a low temperature. Just wondering before I try. Don't want to send the family to the ER.

Not cured, raw skin is boiled for a couple hours which in effect cooks it and renders it safe to /dehydrate. Skin from any part of the hog will work also, if you have a ham, shoulder, picnic, or whole hog same process.

Thanks for the reply. I just wanted to make sure. I've got 24# of bellies cured and ready for the smoker. I skinned the belly before I cured it and figured on making some pork rinds out of the skin.

No it is not cured. As stated above boiling cooks it. However dehydrating also gets it to a safe temp as well low moisture. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Happy smoken.
