What the heck is pellicle? This is when you take protein and prepare the outer layer to receive smoke. Well this is my definition that I will stand by.These are some other definitions of pellicle.

I am smoking Buckboard Bacon, and some' Nitrate Free' Bacon tomorrow. They need to form a pellicle. This is created by a fan or letting them stay in the refrigerator overnight. i am using the refer method. "Oh stop it", I still get drug tested. After 12 hours they will have a pellicle shine and will be ready to accept the smoking process.

Stay tuned for further smoking . I also have some beef shortribs to load up the smoker. I hope our storm in the East Bay will subside.

Boris says that he'll be over once the bacon is ready. He also says that he's not paying any child support.

Tell Boris to come on over and bring his checkbook. Trixe has been ill the last two weeks. A check would sure help with the four vet visits. Trixie is on the road to recovery. She gave us a little scare. Thankfully she just bopped Mojo on the nose. That is a good sign.

We are all thankful that Trixie is feeling better. This is not an admission to paternity.

Boris just wants to sample the peppers as he is a fan of Chinese hot mustard. He also thinks it would be cool to check out his old stomping grounds.
