This is crazy.
My pork belly only weighs 2.26 pounds. 36oz or 1025 grams.
Trying to make a cure for this....but the amounts (going by what I have learned here are very very low)
1025 x 2.75% = 28 grams....thats about 7 teaspoons of salt..... + a heavy 1/2 teaspoon of pink salt + 4 teaspoons of sugar?
I watch all these videos, and these guys are saying pound of salt, 2 oz cure, 8 oz of sugar.....you can barely see the meat...
I am totally confused now......I just wanna make some good stuff to eat.....lol
I've been here:
but still don't get it? Does anyone else find this crazy?
