    Will be getting another frozen belly in the near future. Would like to thaw it in the fridge, take a piece of it off and refreeze the rest of it for use at a later date...will this be safe? And will the multiple freezes effect the quality of the balance of it....

    Sure the answer is here somewhere, just have not found it.....

    Cut it frozen, that fat is pretty easy to carve thru.
  3. I agree with Foam.

    Happy smoken.

    While cutting frozen is the best way to handle this situation I am going to add the following in case the question is looked up later:
    It is safe to re-freeze meat that was thawed in the fridge. There will be some loss in quality.
