    Hi all, I must have got some bugs in my bacon as I just opened the Tupperware up after two weeks in pops brine and was greeted by a nasty smell and gelatinous brine.

    I followed the recipe to the T and the belly was bought at a reputable dealer. It looked good and smelled good prior to its bath. Didnt have any issues with my refrigerator that I can tell.

    Im scratching my head as to what else may have gone wrong?

    Good thing is Ill get to stuff my Linguica today instead of tomorrow!
