Re: [How to Make Homemade Bacon - Recipe](/topic/385/how-to-make-hom
After injecting bacon and it sits overnight, do I need to soak the pork bellies for 20 minutes 2 times or can I take it directly to the smokehouse.
@glenn-0 I would recommend soaking it for sure. If you don’t I think there is a very good possibility that it will be too salty to enjoy. It adds 40 minutes to your processing time but overly salty bacon can be difficult to eat, let alone enjoy!
@Jonathon So do you have a good catfish breading recipe?
@Parksider what did you use for your shell of your cooler? Did you use a cooler insert or just build an insulated shack.
@akdave Not sure what your smoker set up is but the best way I have found to increase the humidity in a smoker is with Automotive Sponges. I detail that in this post https://meatgistics.waltonsinc.com/topic/1077/cured-sausage-205-advanced-thermal-processing
Raising the relative humidity will absolutely decrease your cook times, and it prevents/combats the stall
