THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES!! Had an hour this morning so decided to get half of the fresh bellies I ordered, curing. Going to go with a simple cure, salt, sugars, and curing salt. Additional flavoring may be added prior to smoking. The set up. First slab, 4.98kg Will receive: 112.5 gr salt 40 gr dark brown sugar, 40 gr light brown sugar 12 gr curing salt 6.4% nitrite Now the waiting game! Time to get the smoke house all wrapped up! Second slab was done the same way. Third slab, I used half and half brown sugar, and pure maple sugar.
