I'm trying my 1st Bacon (q-view in process) and modified the honey bacon recipe in Rytec's book. Original recipe had 2 c honey, 1 c salt, 4 T Insta-cure #1. Decided only had a half a slab of bacon so I cut recipe in half and substituted brown sugar for honey. Rubbed well and wrapped in saran wrap and it's in the fridge. Now for the question. As I mixed all three ingredients together and rubbed on and as the brown sugar took a lot of the rub space I still had a lot left over. With the syrup or the honey you'd do the rub then pour over with the syrup or honey, since the brown sugar needs room to stick too and it was all put on at once, am I light on salt and cure for this? I think I could still wash this off yet and start over with honey as original recipe if you think I need to, but kind of liked the idea of brown sugar instead.
