I just started to cure a pork belly for later smoking in a Bradley electrical smoker.
I just the book Mastering the craft of smoking| by Warren Anderson.
In this book there is therecipe fora cure listed as follow:
1 tbsp. salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp Cure #1 (Prague powder #1)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp white pepper
and 2 tsp maple syrup
for 2 1/4 pounds of pork belly.
Than it says.. rub the pork belly with the rub and refrigerate.
After 12 hours, rub again (overhaul) and rearrange, repeat this once a day for about 10 days (depending the thickness of the pork belly.
My questions is, do I have to mix for every day again the recipe (as above) and rub the pork belly?
At the end I have than used approx. 11 times the rub from the recipe over the period of the 10 days
This is not very clear in the book.
Perhaps someone can advise :-)
Any response is much appreciated.
