Kim started a bacon and pancetta cure last week. However our Icemageddon event has caused him to be at work since Sunday. So with some emailed instruction I smoked bacon and hung the pancetta. Here are my pics...

Kim uses a 1 pound coffee can. I put Ono lump and apple wood in the can. I smoked it at 180 for 6 hours until it hit 150. Kim will slice it tomorrow night.

Here is the lump left after 6 hours...

    Ginny, Nice job on the bacon. I have to do another batch, it's so good.
    Love the second pic. With the shadow of the hook holding the pancetta. How long is hang time?

  • Thanks Molly...and I wondered how long it would take until someone noticed the hangman's noose. B) The pancetta will hang for 2 weeks...I hope it turns out.
