Mixed up Pops Brine using Turbinado instead of Brown and lower salt

into a 2 gal zip lock

This is one of my favorites. CB makes the best breakfast sandwiches.

:pepsi:  :popcorn Watching this one Richie. wet brine with low sodium if I understood it correctly? Using the turbinado I'm curios if you notice a change at the end from brown sugar.

 

I have my first BB coming out of cure tomorrow will post the adventure...

Dave I made 1/2 gal used half TBLS. I did not weigh the meat going by thickness

So you know for the future.... Ppm nitrite is a ratio of weight : weight... When using an equilibrium curing setup, the weight of the water and weight of the meat is the basis for adding the cure... for each 5#'s, 1 tsp cure #1 should be added for a 150 Ppm nitrite addition...

The 1/2 gallon of water with the spices, sugar, salt etc. weighs very close to 5#s.. so you have 1/2 tsp. for the meat portion or 2.5#'s of meat.. I'm sure you are within acceptable limits for curing... Just noted the zip bag 1/2 full and wondered...

If you decide to weigh the zip bag with the brine and meat in it... if it weighs approx. 10#'s or so, you can always add an additional 1/2 tsp. of cure #1....

If I'm confusing the issue.... my apologies... Dave
