    Default Dried, cold smoked pork belly

    Poitrine salé, Ailé, Fumé, Séché
    Dried, smoked, salted garlic pork belly

    Dry cure the sliced belly in sea salt for 24 hours (02/05/14, 16H30 to 03/05/14, 17H).
    Rinse well, soak in water for 2 hours (03/05/14, 17H30 – 03/04/14, 19H30).
    Rub the belly with garlic slices, pile the belly slices alternating with slices of garlic.
    Place in the refrigerator over night (03/05/14, 19H30 – 04/05/14, 11H30).
    Before smoking, rub with a mixture of crushed white and black pepper corns (only a little).

    Cold smoke 3½ hours with Cherry and Oak. Temperatures : Min - 19°C (66°F), Maxi – 39°C (102°F), Ave – 29,9°C (86°F).

    Sounds interesting Cal. But it looks good enough to eat as is! Don't know if I could wait for cabbage soup!

    Yup .. cured smoked belly means bacon to me .. dried or not it wouldn't make it to soup time. Great job Cal .. looks very tastey to me

    No chickens were harmed in this statement. But it doesn't mean I didn't want to.
