I decided to start some peameal bacon tonight. This is a first for me and thought I would combine a few recipes for what I think may / hope to taste good. Thanks AK1 for some suggestions. Well this is what I ended up doing. 1 gallon water 74G Ready Cure 122G salt 2 TBS pickling spice 1 TSP juniper berries 1 TBS pepper corns 1 TSP mustard seed 1 TSP whole cloves 1 TSP allspice 1 cup maple syrup 5 LBS pork loin Cure for 10 days. There are 2 X 2.5LB pieces so at this point I am inclined to coat one in cornmeal and smoke the second with either apple or maple wood.
