pot or vacuum

  1. I going to make my first bacon so here is my question.

    Should I leave the bacon in a brim in a pot for 10-14 days


    should I do a dry rub and vacuum seal it for 3-5 day

    Tell me if you have tried both of them and what was your result.

    I have done both a brine and dry cure.

    I like the texture of the dry cure better.

    My dry cure was longer than 3-5 days thou.
  3. ok I have now vacuum seal them and in to the fridge and now the waiting game starts.... [​IMG]

  4. 5 day or more? Dose not vacuum shorten the time?
