Did I mess up? Watered down bacon brine?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm making another slab of bacon.

I had made 2 gallons of pops brine. I tried to use Pops Brine but it wasn't enough water to cover it in my bucket so I added .5 gal water. And nothing else.

Is it ok?
Do I need to add more pink salt #1?
Do I need to add anything?
What should I add?

Here's my brine recipe that I ended up with.

2.5 gal water
1tsp liquid smoke
2 cup brown sugar
2 cup white sugar
1.5 cup kosher salt
2 Tbsp of cure#1

Will it cure?

Thanks in advance.

Also I've ran out of cure #1.

Add stuff that would normally go in a 1/2 gallon mix.... stir and you are good to go.....

I'm out of cure #1 and kosher salt. Can I add table salt instead of those?
