Buckboard Question
 
For all you buckboard bacon makers out there...my instructions say to place the meat in a nonmetallic pan, cure, and cover in cellophane. My question is can the meat be vacuum-sealed in a bag instead of using the mentioned process? Has anyone done it? Does it affect the curing time/quality?

A bag actually works better I think. Just don't pull a full vacuum on it before sealing because you want some mobility with the liquid that will form after a day or two.

HERE are a few of the tips I suggest, you may get an idea or two....

I just use 2 gallon zip bags and try to get most of the air out. I think vac sealing might speed up the cure time but by how much is a wild guess.

HB, I agree with Third eye, ever since he suggested that to me that is how I do mine. Great for rotating the bag and flipping over. No mess.
