    Can Bacon cure too long?

    For various reasons I may have to leave my bacon curing for about 10-11 days. Will that harm it?

    Long bacon cure?

    Hi, For reasons not worth explaining I might have to leave a pork belly curing in it's wet salt sludge for an unusually long time, like two weeks. Will this ruin everything? OTOH, how short a time can I cure it for? Cheers, Michael

    Just so so butts

    Everyone thought the meat s great, but what do they know!!??!! It's interesting what was said about pockets of fat - that makes sense to me. I was using a high heat method, and the probe read 180, but when I checked I put it n a couple places and it read 200. That's when I like to take them off...
