I'm in the process of cold smoking another pork belly today....I'll start a thread with Q-View shortly. I have the slabs hanging using bacon hooks and have noticed that the slabs have elongated some. So my question is....to hang or not? My thought is that the elongation caused by hanging will result in thinner strips. On the other hand, if I lay the slabs horizontal on racks, will I get equal smoke penetration? Any thoughts? I'm probably over thinking this waaay too much.
