I've never tried it, does it taste like bacon, or ham? I've got some curing in the fridge now. Just smoked my first attempt at belly bacon today on the Traeger. Might have to pick up a tube smoker and try cold smoking next time. I didn't say howdy on the new user forum, so here's a few details. I'm in NE North Dakota, have had a Traeger Texas for a few months and have gotten a lot of use out of it. I bought a 30 pound box of pork belly, but froze half of it. Fridge isn't big enough to do all of it at once. Also have 5 tenderloins curing in the fridge for mini Canadian bacon.
