shelf life of cold smoked bacon,,
Ok I am gearing up to do a cold smoke (i think
) Belly is ordered and should be in today or tomorrow.I will use my small egg for the fire, with apple chunks and I am going to use plastic dryer venting to the large where the bellies will rest. How long is the shelf life of the cold smoked bacon? I will either use a vacumn sealer or double wrap freezer paper, ( a friend of mine butchers alot and suggested wrapping). And then into the freezer. We love the flavour of the hot smoked bacon we have done in the past. I am just hearing everyone rant about cold smoked bacon, and its texture. I will have about 9 pounds to smoke. I am a bit concerned with pathogen with the cold smoke method. I remember one member (CT or Nola ??) saying that they cold smoked and then finished it off with a hot smoke to prolong shelf life. Any help with this would be appreciated.. might have to have you over for breakfast.:)
