What Joe Said NO when you are using the kits you use what they give you and only what they give you. You don't mess with cure #1 or 2. they can hurt you.

As stated, use the kit as instructed.

 

Later you can play with seasonings if you wish, but do NOT mess with the cure amounts!

 

Good luck and good smoking.
