    So the temps are going to be really high, I was planning on smoking my bacon but now I'm not sure.... If I do decide not to how long can it sit in the fridge after I wash it and dry it.... Do I wrap in plastic wrap? If I do smoke I'm going to wake up early to start it...

    You can go a week, beyond that I would freeze it...JJ
