Help- Maggots in my bacon

Postby jacklang » Thu May 05, 2005 8:22 am

I tried making bacon according to
I cold smoked it for 36 hours, but when I removed it from the smoke it was crawling with blow-fly maggots.

Aside from general strictures about cleanliness and keeping flies out, I'm surprised they survived the high salt/sugar/saltpetre/smoke. What did I do wrong?
