properly storing cold smoked bacon


Joined Feb 9, 2009
just finished up with cold smoking my bacon this evening and I'm wondering if anyone notices any downside of freezing it. I've read a couple of older publications on storage of cured meats and notice they mention that uncooked cured meats don't fare too well in the freezer.

I never freeze the cured uncooked sausages that I make - just vac-pack and they keep in the fridge for a long time, but I've always frozen the hot smoked bacon I've made.

One publication I referenced stated that salted and uncooked meat can get rancid in the freezer.

I just ate a pack of frozen cold smoked bacon that was froze for almost a year and still taste great.

It is the same as freezing bacon you have bought in the store. Both are raw bacon.
