We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Freeze pork belly?

Recently completed my second batch of home cured and cold-smoked bacon. The quality of fresh side that I am getting is stellar from Sugar Valley Meats but unfortunately they are about 2 hours away. Sure I bet I can find belly closer to home but I'm partial to this butcher. My question is, can I freeze pork belly PRIOR to curing and then thaw it out to cure and smoke? Has anyone done this? I'd like to buy maybe 50-60 lbs at a time.
