Now, Pac, the webcam might be a good idea! That way you won't have to check as much, and maybe refrigerators are like ovens, every time you open the door, you let the cold air out, and it takes time to get it back down to temp.

Cute pup!

I think you should install a video camera with a live feed to a website so we can all log on anytime we want and watch the bacon cure.

Yes, like the Alcoa Eagle Cam. And we can send you notifications when it produces liquid.

Certainly more exciting than watching grass grow... watching bacon cure... but then there's that whole, me with my hand in the fridge thing

Hey. Thought.

We've seen the food you cook so it's not a stretch to imagine you open the fridge...

bacon, recipe

Makin' Bacon! My first attempt at making my own bacon :pig: I will start this week long process by showing the pics from last night. The pork belly. [ATTACH]17816[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]17818[/ATTACH] The rub, or cure. Sugar- 1/2c + 3TB Kosher salt- 2TB + 2tsp Pepper- 1/2tsp Pink curing salt- 1-1/2tsp [ATTACH]17817[/ATTACH] Placed in a lasagna pan and rubbed all over. [ATTACH]17819[/ATTACH] And then placed into a ziploc bag and back into the pan. This will now be cured for seven days in the refrigerator. During this time it is supposed to prodice liquids which will be "massaged" back into the belly so the cure stays evenly distributed. [ATTACH]17820[/ATTACH] To be continued... 3 stars 1 reviews
