This is my first cure. I picked up a 10lbs belly for $15. Measured out 500grams of salt, 250 grams of sugar, and 1/2 tbls of "Sure Cure". Cut the belly into 5 2lbs pieces and added the dry cure (making sure to press rub into belly everywhere. Wrapped in saran wrap and into a ziploc bags. I will turn the pieces over once a day for the next 5-7 days. I plan to cold smoke them then into sealed bags for the freezer, and one lucky piece will get specail treatment and become Paprika bacon. I hope it turns out. More pics to come. Andy.
