3 day cure, both dry and brine. Only 3 days. Well rinsed, even scrubbed.

3ish hour smoke, and now 6 lbs of almost worthless bacon. What did I do wrong??
you need to soak it in water.

Next time, fry up a piece before you smoke it and check it for saltiness.

I have soaked mine in water up to 24 hours to get it right
