Tomorrow is 7 days, and I might have to smoke them by Wed. or Thursday. I can't wait much longer. I will hot smoke them since cold smoking is mostly done during the actual curing process. I will smoke til the IT reaches 150, then cool and they're ready to slice.
So no curing salt (Cure#1 or TQ)? Interesting. Does it taste/look diff than nitrite cured bacon?
