Ok sot I took the jowl - cured it with the pancetta cure - cold smoked it... then put it in cheescloth and hung it for about 5 weeks.... took it down last night.... and well - lots of green mold... so much so that I had to toss it - no question on this one - hell it was almost "smoking" with mold.
Could the cheese cloth hanging have contributed to this?
This is the 1st green mold I have experienced, and I have been doing alot of stuff.
Sort of baffled - ideas anyone?
OTOH - my soppresetta seems to be doing quite well, with lots of white mold and no issues... yet... at about 3 weeks.
