    Bacon on 22.5" WSM w/ Cajun Bandit Door/ Ring and Signals/Bellows

    So I got bored over the holidays and decided to make some bacon using my WSM. This is not my first time making bacon, but I did scale things up as people are always asking to buy some. So I intend to sell ~20/30 lb or 2/3 of the Pork Bellies that I smoked. I used the method outlined at...

    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

    You all are in for a real treat right here. This idea came to me by pure chance.

    Hot or Cold, Wet or Dry?

    Well, I'm a newbie at smoking to be sure. And right now my favorite thing to smoke is bacon, followed closely by cured pork chops. And I did some of both today. Normally I give my bacon a few hours at least in the fridge to form a pellicle. Sometimes I am in a hurry and I cheat a bit by...
