Done tomorrow

  1. So I put my belly in about 10 days ago and tomorrow it is time to remove from the wet cure.  I have seen where people rinse and then dry for one day and then other people dry for a couple of days.  As this is my first time is there a certain amount of time that the bacon needs to dry out?

    After my bacon comes out of the brine,it rests in the fridge til I make time to smoke it.

    I don't have a set time...usually it rests for 2 days.
