Yes, keep us updated! It sounds so good, and I would love to see more photos.

Here she is, probably another 10-14 days in the fridge, then a good rinse cover in black pepper and lard, wrap her in cheesecloth, and hope everything goes well.

I checked out your hog killing blog - loved the gumby suit. Wish I'd bought a meat saw, we did it redneck style with an axe. On the plus side, had a friend and his family heirloom scalding tank plus a tractor with a front end loader and a boom pole on the pack.

I've got pics of my pancetta in another thread. Should be smoking bacon today, but I didn't make it to the saw mill for wood yesterday.

Punk Domestics has a lot of links to dry/air cured ham recipes and info. Check out also the links to the 2011 "Charcutepalooza" challenge on some food blogs. I've been checking them out over the last few days.

I'm going to give some of therecipes a try, hopefully in the next week or so. I have 4 portioned slabs of pork belly in my freezer.

Since I've already completely derailed poor Puumba's thread...

Go for it! Pork belly is an artist's palette. Did you see these lovely numbers?
