Using Pops brine, is it safe to just continue adding gallons of the brine without an increase in meat?  Doing an 9 lb belly and Im doubting one gallon will cover it safely.  Thanks.

Yep. You'll be good. Honestly though a 9 pound belly should be fine in a gallon, all depends on your container.

Thanks guys. Put it in a 2.5 gallon ziploc by cutting it into 3rds and then in the fruit crisper in the fridge. The meat is touching but is completely submerged. Doo I need to turn it in pops brine or just leave it?
