# Help determining how cure per pound I should use

Picked up a bag of bacon cure which tells me 5lbs season cures 100lbs of bellies imparting 200 ppm of nitrite.

Can you guys help me determine how much per pound I should use?

Here is a pic of the bag

Thanks

Ummm....5/100=0.05lb for a lb of belly?
Thank you.

Can you tell me how much is that in ounces or grams?

Apologies if this is a crazy question

I got it.

.05lb =.8 ounces

I would just times that by how many pounds of belly I have.

I probably sound real dumb right now but is this correct.

I'm used to going by cures that tell me this info already

Carter, evening.... 5#'s per 100...... or 5% of the weight of the belly...

5#'s x 454 grams per pound = 2270 grams per 100 #'s.... or 22.7 grams per 1# (454 grams of bellies)...

You got it.

Thank you Dave for the information

Thanks atomic smoke.

This info helps a lot

I was hoping I wouldn't get bad replies from asking so simple of a question.
