    That sounds much like the process for making a dry rub bacon, or a ham even. I learned to do bacon from Staley Marianski's book "Home Production of Quality Meats"...

    I normally use Morton's Sugar Cure, which is mostly salt. Measure out by weight of the pork belly, rub 1/2 on one side the remainder on the other. I put the belly in a plastic tub with a lid, throw it in the fridge at about 45 degrees F. Flip it ever 2-3 days, rub it down again after 7 days. At the end of 14 days, soak the belly in cold water for about 2 or 3 hours to remove some of the salt, pat it dry, back in the fridge to let the salt "equlize" for 2 days, then I smoke it for about 3 hours at @ 170 degrees F.

    just plain salt, a little sugar, and nitrites to kill botulism bacteria. I've put some smaller pieces in large plastic bags in the fridge.

    I presume it's okay to just cook it in the oven unsmoked at the temp/duration, as I don't own a smoker, yet!

    Actually, you could just freeze it if you aren't going to smoke it, and pan fry it, or bake it to cook it.
