Cured Bacon Storage

Recommended Posts

Need advice please.

I cured some bacon for 10 days which finished on Tuesday. Its been washed and left on a rack in the fridge to dry before smoking. Unfortunately I was unable to smoke it when I intended to so its still in the refrigerator. I would like to smoke it tomorrow but was wondering if its been there too long (4 days) its not wrapped. Is there a cut off time for leaving cured bacon in the fridge before smoking. Thank You folks.

It will be fine. It will have started to air dry but the salt and cure will have protected it from bacterial growth in the fridge. Smoke it and wrap it asap though.
