Pulled these from my curing fridge today. They felt ready. Maybe could've dried a little longer, but it's a new curing fridge that I'm still learning how it's going to do. Removed from the cases and vacuum sealed to equalize for a few weeks. Then it's to the slicer. :dr

The smaller one in the back is a lonzardo, loin/fat cap. The one in the front is a coppa.

Wow. Gorgeous.

I probably don't have the time or 3rd fridge for it, but can you recommend a book or site on a how to?

Look for "Charcuterie" by Brian Polcyn and Michael Ruhlman, the revised edition. Fixes some errors in the initial release.

If you're on FB, look for a group called The Salt Cured Pig. Great resource.

This blog got me started - http://curedmeats.blogspot.com. It hasn't been updated in a while though, but has really good info. Was the basis for making my own curing fridge.

When you come to San Diego next month to visit, you can borrow it indefinitely.

Yup, that's the one. A great introduction without a big investment is bacon or pancetta. Both can be done in a regular fridge.

Okay, now THIS is what I am interested in getting into next. Curing!

What kind of curing fridge do you have?
