BBB bacon to sweet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I started with a deboned and butterflied Boston but and soaked it in Pop's brine recipe with 1/2 cup seasalt , 1 cup granulated sugar , 1 cup brown sugar , 1 tbs cure #1 for 11 days . Smoked to an internal temp of 150 .
It turned out good but it is just about to sweet .
The question is can I cut back on the sugar a good bit or just up the salt to make it better?

Yes you can either add more salt or less sugar as long as you keep the cure amount the same.

Thanks .
I think I will try 1/3 cup white and 1/3 cup brown sugar on a small butt I got in the fridge to see if it is better to my taste .
Like it a little salty instead of sweet. Wife even said it was to sugary. She has a sweet tooth and owns a bakery .
The last I made was with himountain and I soaked it in cold water for 1 hour and it was great . Tried the brine on this batch because I thought it was easier . Guess I need to experiment till I git the taste I want.
