I had the pork belly under the cure now for a week. I cut off the skin this morning and have it in the fridge to dry out. I will be doing a hot smoke tomorrow. Has anyone else done this and did you find the skin difficult to remove?

    i remove the skin first.  not too hard.  sharp filet knife helps.

    Thanks Stike, I was hoping you would answer,

    When you say first do you mean before the cure or before the smoke?
